Chianti

Chianti

 Chianti is among the most important, fascinating and famous regions in the world for its excellent wine. It is a hilly area located in the centre of Tuscany, between Florence and Siena. Vineyards and olive groves alternate with cottages, turreted castles, fortresses and ancient towns; this is the typical landscape of Chianti, perhaps the best known of Tuscany. Lately also olive-oil and sheep’s-milk cheeses had an excellent production. So, a trip to the countryside around Siena is even more interesting if you have the opportunity to visit a winery and taste a glass of wine or a slice of bread topped with genuine oil. And many of you will be happy to buy these products directly from the farm to bring home a very special souvenir
