The Russian market offers great opportunities for the export of Italian wines and Chianti, in particular, is highly appreciated for its freshness and elegance, as well as for his dynamism and pleasant taste. Still what matters is the value – and not just in a symbolic perspective – of the territory, that is Tuscany, with its various production areas and, last but not least, the city of Florence, one of the most admired cities in the world.


For this reason occasions for on-the-ground visits are important, because they contribute to a narrative of our wine, especially abroad. Last week, four Russian journalists visited some of the wineries of the Consorzio, following the path of the “Chianti Wine. The legend lives on.” tour.


The Journalists

The journalists collaborate to some of the most important russian publications specialized in the food and wine economy. Our guests were Eleonora Scholes, founder and publisher of the project, Sergey Tsiga by Vinnaya Karta, Valentina Zagorskaya for Imperia Vkusas and Olga Samoylova, editor in chief of HoReCa-magazine.

“Chianti Wine. The legend lives on”

The journalists were taken through the Tuscan countryside for a visiting and tasting experience that concerned some of the Chianti DOCG areas, such as Chianti Rufina, Colli Fiorentini, Montalbano and Montespertoli. The tour gave our guests the chance to combine wine with three elements that coexist in the culture of Chianti, that is food, territory and tradition.


Not simply a legend thus, but a story to tell .. and we hope to read their stories very soon!
