The luscious, rolling chain of Chianti hills that straddle the countryside of Florence and Siena, have characterised this area since the beginning of time. From a historical point of view, across the centuries, the Chianti area consisted of the municipalities of Gaiole, Radda and Castellina, otherwise known as the Lega del Chianti.
The history of Chianti has always been deeply linked to the wines and other first-rate products, making it the perfect destination for a journey through traditional Tuscan food and wine: the towns in the area make up the production zone of world-renowned Chianti DOCG red wine. The Sangiovese variety, at the heart of Chianti Classico, stretches over the hills of this territory, leaving space here and there for sheltered towns and villages whose streets emit the aromas of the nearby wine cellars.
THE VILLAGE TORRITA DI SIENA:
The characteristic village of Torrita is located in the Valdichiana and its origins date back centuries. Its appearance alludes to its history as a fortified town, built to serve as a stronghold for the Republic of Siena. The battles fought here are depicted in a fresco by Lippo Vanni in the Sala del Mappamondo in Siena’s town hall. The artwork portrays a battle with the castle in Torrita in the background. Today, the only conflicts to be found here are the friendly competitions that unfold during the Palio dei Somari, highlighting the rustic but gentle nature of this territory.
The surrounding hills are also made for long walks, like a hike down the Vin Santo Trail, dedicated to the sweet wine produced in abundance here. This route immersed in nature, which passes through cultivated fields, presents visitors with a few fun facts about Torrita and its legends before arriving in the nearby village of Montefollonico, home to its own characteristic houses. This small, shaded village is still surrounded by defence walls, letting visitors know that it was once unconquerable, even if today it’s a popular tourist destination.
