Fattoria dei Barbi
One of the most important wine regions in Italy, Tuscany is home to the Fattoria dei Barbi family estate. Blending tradition and innovation for seven centuries, the Colombini family is one of the most influential of the region and have played an integral part in writing the history of Brunello dating back to 1892. The estate utilises a patented system of vinification, based on the Tuscan tradition of “May Wines”. A wine which was born from the extensive soaking of skinned Sangiovese grapes that rest for 3 months with their pomace.
Chianti
The Chianti region is 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.
