The Black Rooster labels in a unique Collection
The latest Chianti Classico labels will be presented by more than 190 producers at the Stazione Leopolda in Florence, on February 11th and 12th. The Chianti Classico DOP Olive Oil from the 2018 harvest will also be presented.
The Chianti Classico territory is shared between the two provinces of Siena and Florence. The area comprises some 71,800 hectares (177,500 acres) and includes the entire territory of the municipalities of Castellina in Chianti, Gaiole in Chianti, Greve in Chianti and Radda in Chianti and parts of those of Barberino Tavarnelle, Castelnuovo Berardenga, Poggibonsi, and San Casciano Val di Pesa.
The characteristics of the climate, terrain and altitudes, which are unfavorable for most crops, have made Chianti a region that excels in the production of premium wines.
Rows of vines alternating with olive orchards are a characteristic feature of the Chianti landscape. About 7,200 hectares (17,290 acres) of vineyards are registered on the DOCG Register for the production of Chianti Classico making this appellation one of the most important in Italy.
February 11th will be reserved for the press and sector operators; however, on February 12th, from 2 to 7.30 pm, for the first time in its history, the Chianti Classico Collection opens to the public.
Pre-registration is obligatory! (deadline is February 8th, unless event is sold out prior).
