Chianti Hills



The Chianti region is  a productive wine growing area, known for its famous, basket-wrapped "Chianti" wine.






Beautiful villas abound in the gently rolling Chianti Hills.  This area is attractive, peaceful and not as popular with tourists as some of the other areas of Tuscany.

Castello di Spaltenna in the Chianti Hills looks like a small village, but it is a luxury resort with many interesting details.  See their website at
