The Chianti Classico region has always had its own charm, and especially in winter, it offers breathtaking views of mysterious, timeless places.
This place is therefore the perfect place for a dream winter holiday. Art, food, wine and culture in general combine to give you unforgettable emotions.
We wanted to create a small summary of the 5 places where you can spend a perfect winter holiday.
Sit back and let’s get started.
1) Greve in Chianti.
We couldn’t help but start with this small town which is considered by many to be the capital of Chianti Classico. It offers many possibilities from the point of view of hospitality and wine tasting. The wines of this area are perfect for ready-drinking, iris being the dominant scent. Perfect in the first 2-4 years.
2) Panzano in Chianti.
Panzano in Chianti is about 10 minutes’ drive from the previous town. Famous for the butcher Dario Cecchini and his Bistecca alla Fiorentina and, of course, for the conca d’ora. An area that produces sunny, full-bodied and brilliant wines. Here, too, there is no shortage of hospitality options.
3) Radda in Chianti.
Probably the most mysterious town, with a medieval charm and surrounded by wineries that produce perhaps the most distinctive Chianti Classico. Elegant, mineral wines with a unique finesse that are ideal for very long ageing periods and that really need time to evolve and give their best. A unique expression of terroir.
Located in the municipality of Greve in Chianti, this is a small medieval village that can be visited in a couple of hours. Surrounded by hills, it is the perfect place if you want to stroll around after lunch and maybe stop for a short aperitif in one of the local bars/restaurants. The wines of this area tend to be full-bodied, with rough tannins and a strong character.
5) Castelnuovo Berardenga
Castelnuovo Berardenga is a municipality in the province of Siena in Tuscany.
It is located about 20 km from the capital on a hill between the river Malena and the river Ombrone. Since 1932 it has been part of the Chianti wine zone, its territory being divided between the sub-zone of Colli Senesi and that of Classico, of which it is the southernmost municipality.
The wines of this area are very important, full-bodied and certainly recall the wines of the Colli Senesi, precisely because of the geographical proximity and pedo-climatic situation of this area.
