    ITINERARY

    Visit the beautiful region of Chianti with us and immerse yourselves in the picturesque Tuscan scenery that you have always imagined. The beautiful ruby-red colour and the characteristic bouquet with scents of violet are the characteristics that reveal the identity of one of the most famous wines in the world: Chianti. This wine results from the blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, and originates from the hilly area from which it draws its name.

    You will experience the breathtaking landscapes that have been cradling the Chianti vineyards for centuries, presenting you a harmony of colours that can only be found in the hills of this region. The sounds, scents and flavours of this land will capture your senses through a unique experience that you will live, relish and discover by visiting ancient churches, medieval castles and small villages where the rhythm of life remains unchanged over time.

    The tour continues with a visit to a charming wine estate where you will take part in a guided tour of the wine cellars in order to gain insight into the various stages of wine production and in a tasting of the various wines that the winery produces, paired with samples of sliced cured meats, bruschetta and salami. During the tour you will visit the fortress of Monteriggioni. There you will find shops that specialize in typical Tuscan products, as well as elegant cafés where you can stop and enjoy a coffee or a gelato. The tour also includes a second olive oil and wine tasting in another local winery.
