The area today known as Tuscany used to be the homeland of the advanced Etruscan civilization. In 351 BC, Rome took power over the city and added it to its empire. After the fall of Roman Empire and a range of conquering rulers, Tuscany emerged as a political entity with its own kings.
Actually, the region did so well that the fastest growing Tuscan cities slowly gained their independence and created independent republics. By the late Middle Ages, Siena, Arezzo, Lucca, Pisa, Pistoia, and Florence became prospering farming, trade, and economic hubs. Step by step, Florence gained power over the other cities within the region and enjoyed a long period of wealth.
The Chianti area and its wine have the same roots. In fact, Chianti was a name of the wine before becoming the official name of the land. During Middle Ages, three villages (Gaiole, Radda, and Castellina) created so-called Lega del Chianti (League of Chianti). This area later became the spiritual core of Chianti, its wine became a staple of Tuscany.
Today, only a few wineries have the privilege of stapling their wines Chianti. Every one of them, no matter how big or small, has its special recipe. However, the recipe has to fulfill the strict quality regulations of DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita).
