When it comes to Chianti, most people immediately think of Chianti Classico red wine and of the iconic Tuscan landscape filled with vineyards, olive groves and rows of cypress trees. In an hour’s drive from Villa Il Cerretino you can arrive to the very heart of the Chianti region with its historic wine cellars and excellent Tuscan red wines. Don’t miss out on the charming villages of Greve, Panzano, Radda, Gaiole and Castellina in Chianti. Lovers of Sangiovese, the main grape variety of Tuscany and of Chianti Classico, will be in paradise no matter where they choose to go. Instead, white wine lovers can head to the area surrounding San Gimignano with its famous white wine Vernaccia di San Gimignano and admire the town itself known as the “Manhattan of Tuscany” for its profile full of towers that dominate the skyline.
