Petriolo Stemmi - Chianti Shop

Chianti has always been the quintessential Tuscan wine, a product which has made its region famous throughout the world. The rich clay and limestone soil together with a favorable climate, have proved ideal for the cultivation of vines since ancient times. As far back as the 1800s, rules were set up for the production of Chianti and since 1932 a disciplinary code establishes the number of vines for every hectare, the grape varieties and the organoleptic features.
