Chianti wine tours from Florence

Guided Tour in English

Chianti & Super Tuscan small-group wine tour in a nutshell

Chianti Wine Tour will take you to explore one of the best wine-growing regions of Tuscany as well as a premier travel destination. This Chianti tour departs from Florence and operates from Mondays to Saturdays, all year round, with at least 2 participants.


Highlights
  • Small-Group tour, a maximum of 8 people.
  • Guided 7 hr excursion by our English speaking wine expert.
  • Discover 3 quality wineries in Chianti Classico (with tastings of Chianti, Chianti Classico, Riserva, and Super Tuscans).
  • Learn by a professional Sommelier how to approach wine and olive oil.
  • Enjoy a delicious family style meal at the second small winery.

 Wine tour destination

The Chianti Classico area lies between Florence and Siena, within easy reach of the Renaissance capital. Breathtaking views abound at every turn: rolling hills with manicured vineyards and olive groves, noble castles, picturesque villages and ancient wineries large and small dot the landscape. In the spring, purple irises embellish the fields, replaced by bright red poppies later in the season.

Tuscan wine tastings

The Chianti Classico blend includes between 80% and 100% of Sangiovese grapes. The remaining 20% can be Canaiolo, Colorino, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Chianti Classico DOCG must be aged for at least 11 months and have a minimum alcoholic strength of 12°. Chianti Classico has a brilliant ruby color, tending to garnet. The taste is dry at first and becomes softer with time.

The alcohol content rises to 12.5° for the Reserve, which requires minimum aging of 24 months, including at least 3 bottling refinements. Compared with Chianti Classico, the Riserva is a nobler wine, with a higher finesse, longer odor, cleaner taste, and velvety structure.

Chianti wines perfectly compliment the classic foods of the area such as steak, red meats roasts, game, and strong cheeses.

Recommended for...

This tour is designed for red wine lovers and takes participants on a discovery tour of three special cellars: the first one is a small organic family business which produces small quantities but high quality, the second one is a high rated cellar which is present in the leading international wine guides. The last one produces also Chianti Classico Grand Selezione which is a crue of San Giovese grape.

Lunch is also hosted by a small family-run winery, where you will sample typical Tuscan dishes such as bruschetta, various types of pasta or vegetable soup, meats and local cheese. 

Chianti & Super Tuscan wine tour highlights

Visit three different Chianti Classico wine producers and sample their world-class red wines. Chianti is also the land of extra virgin olive oil, so as a bonus treat you will enjoy an olive oil tasting session run by an expert and gain an understanding of what makes a top-quality Extra Virgin.
