Things to know about Chianti

Chianti is a region of Tuscany whose borders are not perfectly defined. Generally, the name of Chianti tends to indicate the name of the hilly area between the current provinces of Florence, Siena and Arezzo: an area famous throughout the world for being home to one of the finest wines of Italy.
 
Visiting the Chianti means immersing yourself in one of the most picturesque areas of Tuscany, where the landscape is dominated by green hills, vineyards and farmsteads. The area is dotted with small towns and villages, many of which still retain their imprint of medieval origins: for example, Castellina in Chianti, Radda in Chianti and Poggibonsi.
 
In addition to its breathtaking landscapes, Chianti's popularity is also linked to its fine red wines produced in the region and simply known as Chianti wine.
