Chianti
Riserva
DOCG


"Every moment
is a fresh beginning."

(T. S. Eliot)

“Clanis” seems to have been the Etruscan name of a stream, originating near Montegrossi in Gaiole. The name Clante seems always to be associated with water. Clante was also the name of important Etruscan family from the area that appears in numerous inscriptions. Whether the family took its name from the territory or vice versa cannot be determined at present, but it is fairly certain that the name “Chianti” is derived from “Clante”.

The oldest documentary record so far known of the name “Chianti” is a 12 C copy of a deed of donation dated 790. The Chianti region as a whole, including all sub-zones and Chianti Classico, stretches 160 kms from north to south. Located primarily between Florence and Siena, Chianti is truly located in the heart of Tuscany. The altitude varies between 150 meters and stretching as high as 600 meters. Higher elevations tend to result in wines with crisper acidity and a finer quality.
