The alluring ruby-red color and specific tickling scents of violet are features that betray the identity of one of the most esteemed wines in the world: Chianti. The wine is a witty blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
In the Middle Ages, three Tuscan villages (Gaiole, Radda, and Castellina) formed a so-called Lega del Chianti (League of Chianti). That area became the historical and spiritual core of the Chianti region. However, as the Chianti wine grew popular, more and more Tuscan villages wanted their lands to be called Chianti. Due to these variations, the region saw countless expansions and subdivisions from its humble beginnings. Today, only a few wineries have the privilege of calling their wines Chianti. The strict quality regulations of DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) ensure the wine awarded this name is up to high-quality standard associated with it.
