Here the rolling hills nurture the most prestigious vineyards producing some of the most renowned Chianti wines, many of which are among the “Super Tuscan” wines, and history dates back the wine production here to 2.000 years, since the Etruscan time. Along the vineyards the olive groves fill in the scenery with their distinctive dark green leaves and low trees, source or of the renowned olive oil which is widely used to prepare local specialities such as the “bruschetta” (pronounced brusketta!).
