How many varieties?

Italy is the fourth country in the world for hectares devoted to vineyards, with its 690,000 hectares it precedes Turkey, while in 2016 China advances, entering the podium overtaking France, while Spain maintains the primacy with 1,021 thousand hectares remains at the top of the standings.
Italy, despite being the smallest by extension, still remains in the top five countries in the world and this is not bad at all, it is also true that our Italy has lost 2.5% of vineyards in 6 years, and this however, is not good at all.
But one certainty, however, is the quantity of production that our Italy produces, again in 2016 there were a good 48.8 million hectoliters of wine that were produced, a good 7 million hectoliters more than France which ranks second and 1 million more than our production in 2015, in short, Italy alone produces 19% of the world’s wine!

Chianti extends throughout the Tuscany Region, and is divided into categories by zone, in 1967 the Denomination of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin was introduced, that is the acronym DOCG which was then integrated with the specific crops divided as follows:

  • Florentine hills
  • Arezzo hills
  • Sienese hills
  • Rufina
  • Montespertoli
  • Montalbano
  • Pisan hills

Each of these crops is divided into as many productions regulated by different regulations for each one, all the Chiantis are made up of the same vines:

  • Canaiolo
  • Trebbaino
  • Sangiovese
  • Malvasia bianca
  • Merlot
  • Sauvignon

The percentage of grapes, on the other hand, varies from wine to wine, but Sangiovese is always the master, which is vinified alone or in variable parts up to 75% and this is what is called Chianti Classico.

What does extra virgin olive oil mean?

Which is obtained by extraction with only mechanical and cold methods, i.e. with temperatures lower than 28° by law and that the acidity must never exceed 8%.

Tuscan oil is a type of extra virgin olive oil and can only be so called if the manufacturing company is part of the Consortium for the protection and enhancement of Tuscan oil IGP: Protected Geographical Indication. There are more than 11,000 registered companies of which over 300 mills, mostly located in the provinces of Florence, Siena and Grosseto with a coverage of 67.5% of the territory, followed by Livorno, Arezzo, Pisa and Pistoia with 30% the remainder is distributed over the other provinces of Lucca, Prato and Massa.

There are many tours that take you to discover the beauties of these places, with centenary vinsanterie (another very good local product), cool cellars that maintain natural temperatures to keep the wine, and mechanical mills where you can see the oil being pressed live. You can ask here for info to take a tour of your choice, or you can do it by going to the cellars that we have already tested and visited so as to be perfectly recommended for the best place.
It has really become a consolidated practice to do wine-tasting and oil tasting, which are nothing more than tastings.
The mission of many of the companies present in Chianti is precisely that of promoting KM 0, from the producer to the consumer in a few hundred metres.
