Chianti Classico 300th anniversary

Three hundred years ago the Grand Duke Cosimo III De 'Medici was the first one to delimit the boundaries of the Chianti Classico wine production area: this was the first Wine Territory. This current year 2016, Chianti Classico celebrates an historic achievement: its first 300 years. For this three-hundredth anniversary the Chianti Classico area will offer an exceptionally eventful season from April to October, which will range from sports to music, lectures on the history and art and, of course, food and wine.
It will be a very special year for the Chianti area, come visit us!

Chianti Classico originates in 1716 when the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Cosimo III De' Medici was the first one to decide to issue a proclamation in order to establish the boundaries of the Chianti wine producing area, the area between Florence and Siena. At the beginning of the twentieth century, when the reputation of the Chianti wine increased and the production area could no longer meet the fast growing domestic and international demand, he began to produce wine, even outside the Chianti area defined in 1716, calling it as well "Chianti" or " wine produced for Chianti’s use". So it was that in 1924 the "Consortium for the defense of the Chianti wine and its original brand" was founded and the symbol chosen for the consortium was a Black Rooster which was the old emblem of the Chianti League Military and which is still commonly used on logos and labels of the Chianti Classico. In 1932 the "Classic" suffix was added to the original name “Chianti” to distinguish the original Chianti from the wine produced outside the defined area. In 1984 Chianti Classico obtained the DOCG (Controlled and Guaranteed Denomination of Origin) which is, to date, the highest recognition for Italian quality wines.
