Castellina In Chianti
Castellina and Chianti Classico
The hilltop town of Castellina lies at the heart of Chianti with medieval fortifications and an imposing Torre presenting a formidable image to the world. Its raison d’etre these days is the production of wine and there is no lack of places to taste and buy. The Bottega del Vino Gallo Nero (the black rooster is the logo of the Chianti Classico DOC) at Via della Rocca 13 is a good place to start.
