According to recent statistics the word “Chianti” is, on all continents and at all latitudes, a synonym for Tuscany. There’s indeed no travel lover on this planet who has not heard about the famous Tuscan hills yet, where the most renowned red wine is produced: the Chianti, which we can easily recognize by its characteristic label of the black rooster (gallo nero).
For modern travellers “Chianti” is not only a geographic indication but also a word that describes a certain lifestyle, sober and elegant, a harsh and evocative landscape made of forests, vineyards and olive groves, a land that has given birth to famous personages, a land where every village is a little masterwork of architecture: from Greve to Panzano, from Castellina to Gaiole, from Radda to San Casciano, from Castelnuovo Berardegna to Vagliali.
Tuscan people are capricious and they have always been quarrelling about the Chianti: many identify it with the “Chianti Classico”, that is the area of production of the homonymous Docg wine; others instead indicate a wider area, but it’s always situated between the provinces of Florence and Siena.
And not by chance these two cities have fought against each other for centuries. But in reality the Chianti and his inhabitants have always had and still have their own, precise and independent identity, culture and way of thinking. Already in the 14th century they founded the “Lega del Chianti” (Chianti league), a military alliance which, on the pretext of ratifying the friendship with Florence, in reality guaranteed the unity of the territory. This territory is indeed very homogeneous regarding its history, its traditions, feelings and its way of speaking and cooking.
With the common denominator – wine – the kitchen of the Chianti sums up the gastronomic traditions of Siena (stew made of the Chianina beef) and Florence (the famous steak), the use of the extra virgin olive oil (the oil of the Chianti has got the label for the guarantee of origin “DOP”), the virtues of the robust, rural gastronomy and the famous cold meats of its VIP-butchers.
But the Chianti is also a territory which is rich in culture that can be discovered step by step wandering the little streets and exploring the numerous villages, castles and abbeys that are hidden behind every corner: from the abbey of Passignano to the enchanted village of Montefioralle, from the parish church of San Leonino to the castle of Brolio and up to the high grounds of Monteluco.
