Chianti Classico Collection 2019

Updated: Feb 24, 2019

Prior to reviewing this year’s tastings, I thought it may be useful to mention some basic facts relating to Chianti Classico denomination.

Firstly a brief outline defining the nine areas that form the Chianti Classico territory laying between the provinces of Florence and Siena:


Is the third largest of the Chianti Classico regions and the furthest south.

The area is divided by a V section from Gaiole in Chianti which splits the area in two, the eastern side being higher and cooler where the famous and revered estate of Castell'in Villa is to be found.

The lower side is in the west, the warmest part being the extreme south west.

Noteworthy estates are Dievole and Fèlsina.
