Gaiole in Chianti

Voted by Forbes in 2008 as ‘the Most Idyllic Place To Live in Europe’, Gaiole in Chianti, located about 15 km northeast of Siena, is a town worth visiting. In the Middle Ages  Gaiole, Castellina and Radda formed the Lega del Chianti, which became the heart of the Chianti region.

The Black Rooster (Il Gallo Nero), the symbol of Chianti: first, of the Chianti League in 13th century, and then of the Chianti Classico Consortium.

I strongly recommend a stop at The Gastronomia Le Cose Buone in Gaiole’s main street. The owner, Andrea Povia, is a master sommelier able to guide you through the real attractions of Gaiole: its Chianti Classico wine and gorgeous dishes made of high quality products. The food is absolutely divine here, simple, fresh and cooked with a passion that is almost tangible. I always feel like a happy soul each time I visit!

Genuine products and Andrea's cordiality are the perfect match.
