We start our journey from Florence at 9:00
The first of the small and fascinating places we will visit during this magnificent tour of the Chianti valley is Montefioralle in Chianti. This little village is considered one of the oldest settlements in Chianti and one of the most beautiful Borgo in Tuscany located on a hill and surrounded by picturesque vineyards.
After a quick stop at Panzano just for taking photos, we will go to the medieval town of Radda in Chianti, located in the heart of Tuscany. Together with Gaiole and Castellina, Radda was one of the so-called Tre Terzieri (Three bulwarks) of the ancient Lega del Chianti (Chianti League). The Lega del Chianti was an administrative, political and military alliance created by the Florentine Republic to defend the southern borders of its territory as they were situated not very far from Siena, the last independent stronghold not yet under the control of the powerful Florence.
Next, we will be heading to a winery located in the area between Radda and Castellina in Chianti
for visiting it and a tasting of their Chianti wines and, in particular, Chianti Classico the undoubted protagonist of this production area. This wine tasting could be optionally paired with an exquisite light lunch made of typical and genuine local products.
After wine tasting we will have free time at Castellina in Chianti city center, for discovering its medieval beauty.
At the end we will move back to Florence where all our services end.
