Located in central Italy, along the western coastline, the Chianti wine region is one of the many distinct wine growing areas in the world-famous Tuscany wine regions. Although the Chianti varietal grows throughout Tuscany, the main growing area is between the cities of Florence and Siena and Arezza. The towns of Greve in Chianti and Radda in Chianti are two of the best locations for wine tourists in the region.
It’s mass appeal to international visitors is due in part to its highly romanticized countryside, replete with rolling hills, endless acres of vineyards and olive groves and charming villages, and in even greater part to its vast selection of iconic and noteworthy wines.
