One of the most imposing, classical Chianti properties, just south of Florence, has been meticulously restored by Gerd and Stephan Schue. It is the complete Tuscan estate with olive oil, a great restaurant (Solissimo) and other crafts, to complement compelling and unusually rich reds and authentic Vin Santo from Chianti Colli Fiorentini the ‘Hills of Florence’
Lucignano Chianti in the hills just south of Florence (‘Colli Fiorentini’) has long had a high reputation for it’s generous and juicy black cherry and prune fruits and touch of game or leather, followed of course, by the savoury Sangiovese finish. Well regarded as value for authentic and very well made Chianti.
