Chianti

Chianti is a DOCG wine produced in Tuscany. Composite of Sangiovese at 80-100%. Chianti is born in a geologically very homogeneous area, located south of the northern Apennines and between the latitudes that include Florence and Siena.

the production area of ​​"Chianti Classico" It covers 71 800 hectares. It is located in the center of the Tuscany Region and includes part of the territory of the provinces of Siena (41 400 hectares) and Florence (30 400 hectares). Within the production area are also the original areas of production of Chianti wine: Castellina in Chianti, Radda in Chianti, Gaiole in Chianti in the Province of Siena.

"Chianti Superiore" means an additional mention of which wines from a good part of the Chianti area can be obtained, obtained by following a more rigid specification. The production area of ​​DOCG Chianti wines is extremely vast; so vast and different in its microclimates - and therefore in the quality of its wines - that it was in its time divided into different production areas, called sub-zones. Currently the sub-areas are 8 (Classic, Colli Aretini, Colli Fiorentini, Colli Senesi, Colline Pisane, Montalbano, Montespertoli and Rùfina). In 1996 a new Chianti disciplinary was approved (on that occasion the disciplinary of the Classic sub-zone from the general one of the Chianti area was also excluded) which envisaged the possibility of the additional mention of Superiore. The wines that wished to use this mention must be registered in the appropriate register of the Chianti Superiore, subjected to a more severe disciplinary and abandon the name of the sub-zone. In this way we wanted to meet those consumers who wanted to understand the quality level of the wine, not being able or wanting to know perfectly the climatic geography of Chianti.
