|Postcards from Tuscany|
|Greve in Chianti|
|Many British and northern Europeans have relocated in the Chianti district, drawn by the unhurried life, balmy climate, and charming villages; there are so many Britons, in fact, that the area has been nicknamed Chiantishire. Still, it remains strongly Tuscan in character, with panoramic view of hills covered with vineyards and tall and slender cypress trees.
The oldest wine-growing area of the region produces Chianti Classico, identified by the black rooster on the label.
