The first incarnations of Chianti as white wine entered the scene in the 13th century! Hmm... was Chianti a wine before it was a region? Well, in Middle Ages, three villages - Gaiole, Castellina and, Radda - formed so-called Lega del Chianti (League of Chianti). This area became the historical and spiritual soul of the Chianti region. As the Chianti wine grew steadily in popularity, more and more Tuscan villages wanted their lands to be called Chianti. In fact, over the course of history, the region saw countless expansions and subdivisions.
The diversity of soil and microclimates contributed to a diversified range of quality on the market. By the end of 20th century, people associated this brand with a basic mass-market Chianti in a squat bottle with a straw basket, fiasco. Today, only some wineries can call their wines Chianti. Each winery will have its own secret recipe which, however, has to abide by the strict quality regulations of DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita). But it wasn't just the boundaries that changed. The grape also evolved quite dramatically. The first Chianti wines were white but slowly transformed into the red.
