Full description
Starting in the center of Florence, your English-speaking driver will take you on a scenic drive straight into the heart of Chianti. You will drive along the ancient Roman road “Cassia Vetus”, surrounded by rolling hills with breathtaking views over vineyards and olive groves.

Your first stop will be the Medieval village of Greve, which is the birthplace of Giovanni da Verrazzano, the Florentine traveler who discovered the Hudson Bay in the 15th century. Next you will visit the superb hilltop hamlet named Montefioralle. Strolling through the narrow streets, you might be surprised to discover that this stone village has been perfectly preserved since the 12th century. You can admire breathtaking panoramas and discover anecdotes and secrets related to the “Black Rooster”, the emblem of the Chianti Classico.

A short trip later, you will arrive to San Casciano where you will visit a splendid historical villa from the 15th century. To this day, the villa is home to one of the most ancient noble Florentine families. You will be free to explore the garden and the ancient Medieval cellars, where original and prestigious oak barrels are still used to age the wine produced on this estate. You can also grasp the chance to learn the secrets of olive oil, and how to recognize its genuine flavor. Your experience will end in the proper Chianti way, with a typical Tuscan meal that you will get to enjoy on the private estate. It will be prepared with organic ingredients that are grown on the property, and to top things off you’ll get to enjoy a pairing of 3 top Chianti Classico wines and taste an extra-virgin olive oil.
