Full description
Chianti. This wine results from the wise blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, and originates from the hilly area from which it draws its name. Expert and witty tour leaders will lead you to the discovery of the breathtaking, uncontaminated landscapes that have been cradling the Chianti vineyards for centuries, presenting you with a harmony of colors that can only be found in the hills of this region.
You'll enjoy wine tasting at vineyards featured in the best specialised magazines, such as Wine Spectator and Decanter. During each visit, you will have the opportunity to follow a detailed description of the different steps required for the production of wine: your journey through taste will start from the vineyard, with illustrations of the growth and development of the vines and will lead to the cellar, where the product undergoes processing, fermentation and bottling.

The sounds, scents and flavors of this land will capture your senses through a unique experience that you will live, relish and comprehend by visiting ancient churches, medieval castles and small villages where the rhythm of life remains unaltered over time. Enjoy exploring the fantastic scenery and you'll soon find yourself appreciating the century-old traditions.
