Scenic and wine & food itineraries
The Chianti Classico Wine and Oil Road has its mainstay in the Chiantigiana route that crosses the entire territory, passing first through Greve in Chianti with its picturesque marketplace, then Panzano, with its San Leolino country parish church, then Castellina and Fonterutoli to finally reach Siena.
Most of the route consists of the grid of roads connecting the larger towns to villages and castles, like the one leading to Radda in Chianti, former headquarters of the Chianti Military League, and then to the Castello di Brolio where Bettino Ricasoli devised the “recipe” for Chianti wine.
Following the Wine and Oil Road you can enjoy guided tours of the wineries and tastings of wines. olive oils and cold cuts: in its restaurants and bistros you can savor the specialties of Chianti cuisine.
