Chianti

Chianti (pronounced "key-an-tee") is a red blend located in central Tuscany, Italy. It was historically associated with a squat bottle enclosed in a straw basket, called a 'fiasco' however, the fiasco is only used by a few makers of the wine now.

In 1932 the Chianti area was completely re-drawn and divided in seven sub-areas: Classico, Colli Aretini, Colli Fiorentini, Colline Pisane, Colli Senesi, Montalbano and Rùfina.

During the 1970s producers started to reduce the quantity of white grapes in Chianti. In 1995 it became legal to produce a Chianti with 100% Sangiovese. For a wine to retain the name of Chianti, it must be produced with at least 80% Sangiovese grape.
