Just an hour’s drive from beautiful Florence, a day trip to the Chianti region can offer you a truly unforgettable experience! Delight your eyes with a breathtaking scenery as you drive through the voluptuous green hills, lined with vineyards. Delight your taste-buds as you take in the flavor and the aroma of delicious and world-famous Chianti wine.
The Medieval Town of Monteriggione
Especially for you, Tourcrafters has selected the perfect Chianti experience. This is an escorted road-trip of sheer delight that includes a long panoramic drive, the visit to the picture-perfect medieval town of Monteriggioni and the tour of two wineries, owned by local families that have been guardians of the wine-making tradition for generations. Here, you can taste up to ten different varieties of Tuscan wines carefully combined with a tasting of savory local products, as an expert guide reveals to you the secret behind the elaboration of Chianti wine and teaches you how to savor and recognize a true Chianti.
You will enjoy a selection of Tuscany’s best wines and products: the Chianti Classico, Vermentino, Morellino di Scansano, Chianti Riserva Superiore, Super Tuscan, different types of pecorino cheese, balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, home-made bread, salami and prosciutto …
Each wine is a unique treat for the senses. The famous Super Tuscan, for example, offers you a ruby sight for the eyes, a delicious tobacco and chocolate aroma, the feel of a full-bodied texture on your tongue and the strong taste of a high category aged wine made only with the best harvests with a perfect combination of Merlot, Sangiovese and Colorino grapes. And how about the sense of hearing? Delight yourself in the merry laughs and chatter and the “mmm, yum”s of your fellow wine tasting companions!
As the Americans who first tried this type of wine in Tuscany said, “It’s so good, it’s Super Tuscan!” And theirs was such a genuine delight, that the name stuck!
