A Short History of Chianti (To Enjoy With Your Next Glass)
The Chianti region of Italy, located in Central Tuscany, is one of the most beautiful areas in the entire region. It’s dreamy and romantic, featuring lush, rolling hills and gorgeous villas. The area is also best known for the wines that come from there – also called Chianti. A medium-bodied red wine, Chianti is mouthwateringly acidic with moderate to high levels of tannins. Floral and spicy when young, they develop earthier notes as they age. Chianti has increased in quality significantly in the last few decades, providing us with some of the most delicious wines to have alongside meals.
