The Chianti area lies between the cities of Florence and Siena. It is a hilly, wooded region made lush and green by abundant winter rains and many natural springs. It is very stony and farmers have been able to use it to grow grapes and olives and not much else. For centuries this has been the natural habitat of the native varietals Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino. Together these give life to one of the best-known wines in the world: Chianti, which takes its name from the land where it was born.
