The Chianti, known not only for its landscape but also the fruits of his land. The exquisite wine that it produces, known since Etruscan times, has given prestige to the region and worldwide fame. The area is protected by two major consortia: the Consortium of Chianti Classico and the Consorzio del Gallo Nero, whose name comes from the Chianti League, formed in the thirteenth century by the communes of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole. These enchanting hills cultivated with vineyards and woods as oak, chestnut and oak. The countryside is dotted with farmhouses, now a destination for tourist trade. The beautiful villages in Chianti are often characterized by fortified medieval castles, to witness the ancient wars between Siena and Florence, while the Romanesque churches emerge from the past on the undulating landscape. Through stretches of vineyards and woods are still wild, we reach Greve. Do not miss a visit to Monteriggioni, the most characteristic of the villages north of Siena, Florence on the Via Cassia. This quaint village is closed by a round circle of walls in which there are several towers all still intact. Along any road, meet constantly farmhouses, farmhouses with beautiful avenues of cypress trees and ancient manor houses, each of which seems to want to tell their story.
