The seductive ruby-red color defines one of the most esteemed wines in the world: Chianti. The wine is a sumptuous blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, Canaiolo, and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Since its humble beginnings, it proved to be the desired specialty. In fact, it was so renowned, the area where it comes from was named after it. The wine defined not only the area's borders but also history, culture, and economic growth.
The history of the Fiat 500 - or as Italians say Cinquecento - started in the 1950s. Drawing inspiration from the original Fiat 500 Topolino (little mouse), the designers devised it to be small, practical, and affordable. In other words, a perfect vehicle for the narrow streets of old Italian cities. It became so popular, it earned a nickname "the people's car." The production, however, ran only for eighteen years, from 1957 to 1975. Still, even in that short time, it won over the hearts of many. People loved it for both its low maintenance costs as well as style.
