Contea di Luca

The earliest documentation of a “Chianti wine” dates back to the 13th century when viticulture was known to flourish in the “Chianti Mountains” around Florence. Today, the Chianti region covers a vast area of Tuscany and includes within its boundaries several overlapping Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) and Denominazione di Origine Controllatae Garantita (DOCG) regions. In the late 20th century, the region experienced a renaissance with producers using selective Sangiovese clones, new viticultural practices and more “modern” cellar techniques.
