Seven Sub-zones of Chianti

  1. Nice clear explanation, Tom, and a very useful map — but I think Chianti Rufina (especially Selva Piana) deserves some special notice for its distinction from the other satellite zones. Maybe that’s just my palate, but i taste a marked difference there.


    1. Tom: Thanks for your comment, and I would agree that Rufina is particularly special among these sub-zones. This was sort of a “chamber of commerce” article about Chianti in general, so I touch a bit on all these zones. Yes, there are some superb wines from Rufina (especially from Selvapiana); you’ve given me an idea for a future post- thanks!
