Castellina in Chianti : Michelin's recommendations
Located in the heart of the Chianti vineyards, midway between Siena and Florence, this small town is a mecca for the famous wine which is named after the region. Take time to stop at a local enoteca (wine bar) and order a glass of wine, which will be served with an almost religious fervour. Don’t miss the unusual Via delle Volte, a street which is vaulted along almost its entire length.
