Chiantiis a red wine with a rounded and harmonious taste born in the heart of Tuscany, a precious gift from the land lying between the historical and artistic treasures of Florence and Siena.

Its production is controlled by the DOCG mark of quality and requires the use of only selected vines, predominantly of the Sangiovese variety, which lie on the Tuscan hills fewer than 700 meters above sea level.

The winemaking tradition of the Chianti region is rooted in the ancient histories of Etruria and later of Rome. The symbol of the region, a black rooster on a gold field, refers to the emblem of the 13th century League of Chianti. The emblem was later painted by Giorgio Vasari on the ceiling of the Hall of Five Hundred in the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence.
