CHIANTI COLLI SENESI
The term Chianti represents, together with the centuries-old cultural traditions, history, literature, gastronomy, the resident population, not only a great wine, but also a more complex socio-economic system.
The great development of viticulture took place with the advent of the Medici family. Already in the second half of the fifteenth century, Lorenzo dei Medici, in the Symposium and in the Song of Bacchus, illustrates a popular atmosphere, where wine is the essence of a theater of wit and banality, bordering on the grotesque. Wine was therefore for the Medici, former merchants and bankers, a good and a gift, it was food, commodity and symbol. Chianti Colli Senesi receives the DOC, Controlled Designation of Origin back in 1967. Our Chianti is produced with Sangiovese and black Canaiolo grapes.

The extra virgin olive oil is produced on the suggestive hills of the Municipality of San Gimignano with Moraiolo, Frantoio and Leccino olives that are harvested by hand and immediately brought to cold pressing.
We Tuscans love it "natural and raw", on a slice of bread, possibly toasted, with a little bit of salt and we call it: Fettunta.
Excellent dressing for red meats, better if roasted, for boiled legumes of all kinds, for soups in particular on the "pappa al pomodoro", but it goes well with everything!
