Chianti Wine and Olive Oil Tour - CODE: WFCHIA02
In the heart of Tuscany, between Florence, Siena and Arezzo, Chianti is an area covered by woodlands, rows of vines and olive orchards. The climate is continental, with relatively low temperatures in winter, while summer is dry and hot. The soils vary from area to area, but it is possible to identify a common element, that is the mixture of stones and pebbles of calcareous clays, of limestone and schist. Chianti wines are dry, with balanced acidity and gripping tannins.
Visit a true and authentic agricultural establishment whose activities focus on wine and olive oil. Visit the old cellar and learn about Chianti Classico wines. Through a tasting of different types of extra virgin olive oil, discover the complexity of a production that seeks to match the olive tree to its land and the oil olive to its grove. Then, enjoy a wine tasting and light lunch. After lunch, visit one more winery of the area and sample different types of both traditional and Super Tuscan wines. Stop over in a medieval Tuscan village, stroll around and browse the little shops for traditional handmade crafts and souvenirs.
