Chianti Classico contains some quintessentially Tuscan landscapes: medieval wine castles surrounded by grey-green olive groves and hill-side vineyards, punctuated by dark cypress trees.

Hills, low mountains and valleys make this area enjoyable for those who like nature.

Still well preserved and uncontamineted, it is a good habitat for many animals such as porcupines, hitch hock, foxes, hares, pheasants, guineafowl and wild boar.

Here the light blue iris grows wild: fields of this flower –symbol of Florence used for centuries to make parfumes - cover the land in May .

This sandy soil with its deposit of marl and limestone, galestro and calcare, has proved perfect for the production of wine and olive oil.
