The Consortium

The rolling hills which enclose Florence like in a cradle have always housed splendid vineyards, which gave rise to the vino cittadino (an antique term used to describe the wine as genuine expression of the Florence countryside), a wine par excellence, produced by the noble families that had their country residences and hunting lodges here.

The extremely close bond between the Renaissance city and the wine of the surrounding hills is amply recorded in literature and in paintings, and once upon a time, the vineyards reached the gates of the city, as is seen from the names of certain streets in the old city centre. The heir to this old tradition is the Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin Chianti Colli Fiorentini, which, in its name, expresses its lasting bond with Florence and its inhabitants.
