Chianti is a vast territory between Florence and Siena in the heart of Tuscany, a region known for wine and olive oil production as well as for the magnificent landscape. In the past this area was the site of many battles between the two provinces to such a degree as to cause the Republic of Florence in 1384 to found the Chianti League, which was a military-political alliance. Its mission was to defend and to administer the territory on behalf of the Florentine republic. For their coat-of-arms they had the image of a black rooster on a gold background which became the symbol of Chianti Classico vine. The league survived even after the end of the battles between Florence and Siena and was abolished only in 1774. During the tour we will have the occasion to visit some of the most famous farms, see their wine cellars and taste excellent wines.
