The Chianti Road
Would you like to discover the heart of the Chianti Classico, following the Italian myth from the XIII century? We leave early in the morning from Marina di Scarlino, direction Florence, to reach the wine town Impruneta with its Santa Maria Sanctuary. After Strada in Chianti, following the SS 222 direction Siena, we arrive in Greve in Chianti, with its beautiful medieval square and historic cellars, fit for a tasting of the best vintages. For a medieval feel, we continue to Montefioralle, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, and walk along its quiet streets and ancient vineyards.
This charming land holds endless surprises: after only a few kilometers we are in Volpaia, a perfectly preserved medieval village, famous for its castle and the magnificent wine cellar (in May the village is filled with the fragrance of thousands of roses). After Radda in Chianti, home of the Chianti Classico Consortium, our final stop takes us to the 11th century church of San Giusto in Salcio. A day filled with endless impressions of beauty.
