Everyone knows Chianti Classico from Tuscany, and a lot of people unfortunately connect it with the flask bottles and not a good wine. You have to know that Chianti area is wide and there are different Chianti Classico and regular Chianti wines, which are both really good, obviously the basic one and the Riserva too. Great wine made with Sangiovese grape – not less than 80 % – and then the rest a blend with local autochthonous and not autochthonous grapes. Chianti is a beautiful area of Tuscany to visit, and to do amazing wine tours tasting unbelievable wines with a great and genuine food directly from small producers of the area.
Tasting Chianti and Chianti Classico wines you will enjoy the real Sangiovese with its particular colour, smell and taste, pairing it with a succulent steak or fillet. Set between Florence and Siena, the Chianti region features beautiful hills full of lush vineyards and olive groves where I can organize custom-made wine tours of all types, some of which includes visits with me of ancient castles that produce award winning Chianti wines, and wine tastings with a delicious lunch in front of breathtaking views. From Chianti area you can easily reach Florence, Siena, Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano, Cortona, other great hill towns of Tuscany, and have a full day of fantastic wine, great food and unique panoramas that only Tuscany in Italy offers. Wine, Food, History, Landscape and Fun you can find Under the Tuscan Sun. Chianti wine means so much for the people native of this area, because it is a wine you can have just for a wine tasting, a drink with your loved one, or to pair with a memorable dinner with family and friends, as to me it is a wine for everyone. What else can be better than a wine tasting tour with me around the windy and scenic roads of Chianti in Tuscany, Italy, followed by a lunch or dinner in this beautiful region ? You are welcome !!!

Often when I go for dinner out I don’t miss the chance to have some Chianina beef, it is a must in Cortona, Tuscany. It is the best beef ever you can taste in your life, you can have it like bistecca, tagliata, or the best choice of it is Chianina beef hamburger. I discovered the Chianina beef burger years ago, and when I got it my mouth started to water before I took the first bit. Chianina is a special breed of white bull native of Valdichiana, present in Cortona, Montepulciano, Siena and Arezzo, where its name comes from. It is huge and full of muscles and is raised in the countryside. In the past it was used to plough fields and for this reason was a kind of hard meet. Now they don’t work anymore and for these reason the meet is tender, tasty and so amazing. For sure it needs a great tannic red wine to balance this big meet. All these things you can find only in Tuscany, the famous and beautiful land of wonderful food, of great and famous wines and so many places to visit. Come to Tuscany and I will take you on a tour to show you the marvellous beef farms and taste their excellent meats. Tasting the Chianina beef will make your day in Tuscany memorable, and trust me you will want to come back.
