When it comes to Tuscan wine, thoughts immediately fly to the area of Chianti, one of the most renowned production areas for its tradition and quality of its wines. Chianti lies between the provinces of Florence, Arezzo and Siena, so you hear also of Chianti Colli FiorentiniChianti Colli Senesi and Chianti Colli Aretini, just to name a few of the additional areas (the names mean Chianti of the hills of Florence, of the hills of Siena, and the hills of Arezzo, as a literal translation). So you can do wine tastings in a very broad area! or a well-rounded experience, go directly to the wineries that produce the wine. Tasting their wines on the spot and maybe visit the winery and vineyards is an awesome opportunity.
