four Chianti Classico wines

Chianti Classico is one of the Chianti regions in Italy

From Top to Bottom, It’s a Chianti Extravaganza!
Join the Italian Food Wine and Travel Group as we expand our knowledge about Italy’s most famous wine: Chianti! We’ll be posting and chatting about our findings on Saturday October 7.

If you have a blog and would you like to join us, just send an email to me at jmb5121@gmail.com. I’ll be looking for blog post titles on Tuesday, October 3. We post early on Saturday October 7 and chat on Twitter at #ItalianFWT from 10-11am CDT.

Coltibuono Chianti Classico

What do you love about Chianti? Here’s your chance to share

Write something about Chianti. Try some new winegrowers, highlight your favorite budget Chianti, dig deeper into a new sub-region. So go find a Chianti, Chianti Classico, or any other version of Chianti and join us.

This month, though, it’s only Chianti. No Super Tuscans, Brunello need not apply, no Sangiovese from somewhere other than the Chianti region.

If you’ve visited, we’d love to hear about your experience in the region and something special you found there. We’re all ears (or eyes)!

If you’re not quite sure what the Chianti region is, there is an excellent overview available on Wine Folly, here.
