About This Wine
It is one of the most esteemed regions of the “wine world.”
Italy’s Chianti Classico stretches between Florence and Siena, and includes only 14 municipalities. It’s a small wine region that produces one of the best-known and appreciated wines, crafted primarily from the Sangiovese variety. Wine has been produced in this area for more than 2,000 years, since the time of the Etruscans.
Located near Vinci in the heart of Tuscany, between Florence and Pisa, Rossetti specializes in the production of various types and denominations of wine, including a highly acclaimed Chianti Classico. A modern, technologically advanced winery helps ensure quality vintage after vintage.
