Chianti Surroundings

Between history and enogastronomy

The Chianti Territory

Agriturismo Melariano is located in a panoramic position amidst the rolling hills of Chianti, just a few minutes from Siena and Tuscany's most famous places of art. It is ideal for a relaxing holiday immersed in the beautiful Chianti countryside and at the same time for a holiday discovering the wonderful area of the province of Siena, where every year the Chianti ecomarathon and the Eroica are celebrated.

Characteristic of this part of Tuscany is the fascinating succession of villages, vineyards and hills, in an evocative medieval atmosphere. One of the most famous Italian wines, Chianti d'Eccelenza Gallo Nero, is produced here. 

An area, that of Chianti, rich in history but also in gastronomic tradition, where in the course of history, foods that traditionally fed the poor have been ennobled to such an extent that they have become delicious ingredients of international nouvelle cuisine. One need only think of such typical dishes as ribollita, stuffed neck, chicken livers, and the blazoned tripe.
