Rolling Hills of Tuscany's Chianti Region

Large arrow left

Driving through Tuscany this May, my husband and I loved everything about the region, from its classic Tuscan architecture and warm colors to its rich food and delicious wine. And we found no better place to enjoy Tuscany's wine than the world-famous Chianti Region.

Lying in Tuscany between Siena and Florence, the Chianti Region is best known for its "Chianti Classico" wine. But not only is the region's wine delicious, its landscape is absolutely beautiful as well. These lush rolling hills, lying just outside Montalcino, are typical of the Chinati Region and combined with the quaint Tuscan towns and beautiful architecture of the region to make our time in Chianti unforgettable.
