As red wine and green as the leaves of the vine and the olive: Chianti, a land of flavors and magic.
The Chianti region of Tuscany is a hilly region that extends to the west of the River Arno, between Florence and Siena. The green and rolling hills that characterize the area taking in the east, in the mountains of Chianti, the appearance of low hills, with vast plateaus, crossed by short streams. Olive groves, vineyards and woods outline the beauty of the landscape and backdrop to ancient villages scattered along the hills. The fertile soil, mild climate and unspoiled nature have made the Chianti lands one of the most famous Italian food and wine.
Local agriculture produces olive oil, valued at national level. Other typical products are: Tuscan bread, finocchiona (a seasoned salami flavored with fennel seeds), raveggiolo (a sheep’s milk cheese, jelly-like consistency) and Florence (the famous Chianina beef steak). But the real highlight of the gastronomy of the Chianti wine is produced and traded in accordance with “Appellation of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin”, appreciated throughout the world for its ruby color, intense aroma and its taste is dry and decided.
