Chianti in Gaiole

829

When a word is associated with Chianti this basically is not just about the wonderful and mesmerizing beauty of the place but also one of the best wine you can find in the Tuscany region in Italy.

The earliest documentation of a “Chianti wine” dates back to the 13th century when viticulture was known to flourish in the “Chianti Mountains” around Florence. The merchants in the nearby townships of Castellina, Gaiole and Radda formed the Lega del Chianti (League of Chianti) to produce and promote the local wine. In 1398, records note that the earliest incarnation of Chianti was as a white wine.
