Chianti Classico wine tour

This Chianti Wine Tour is a true wine experience to get know two of Tuscany's best wines, the  Chianti Classico DOCG and the Super Tuscan IGT.

By far the most famous of the Tuscan wines, Chianti is a red wine produced in the Chianti region and is made from the Sangiovese grape which gives it a note of summer fruit and a hint of spices. Not all Chianti wines are created equally though and there is a general consensus that Chianti Classico wines are of a much higher quality. This is due to the fact that they are produced in a very small region that is known specifically for Chianti production and are also held to a much more stringent standard in terms of the winemaking process.

Your excursion commences with a drive through the breathtaking Tuscan countryside as you delve into the heart of the Chianti Classico region. Over the course of the trip you will visit two smal scale wineries which are family owned. This enables you to connect with the proprietor on a much more personal level while he/she shows you the finer aspects of viticulture. Our experienced guides will be with you every step of the way teaching you about the wines and how to taste them. In addition to Chianti Classico wines, you will be given the chance to enjoy the DOCG and IGT “Super Tuscans.”


Chianti Clasico Docg

This wine has brilliant ruby color, tending to garnet. The taste is dry, softer with time.

Chianti Classico must be aged for at least 11 months and have a minimum alcoholic strength of 12 °.
 
The gradation rises to 12.5 ° for the Reserve, which requires a minimum aging of 24 months, including at least 3 bottling refinements. Compared with Chianti Classico, the Riserva is a more noble wine, with a higher finesse, longer odor and clean taste.

Gloomy red tannery, with scent of spices and berries, an important and velvety structure.
The Reserve combines perfectly with roasts of red meat, game and large cheeses: classic food of the gastronomy of this territory since ancient times.
 
Chianti Classico bland includes the Sangiovese grape, present in percentages that can range from 80 to 100%.
Other red berries are allowed for a total amount of up to 20%: Canaiolo, Colorino, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
