Le Querciole del Chianti is strategically located in the heart of Chianti Classico. Its position offers the chance to discover the many villages scattered around the area. It is a unique experience, something that not only will fill up your eyes of stunning sunsets, colourful panoramas, winding and lets also add bumpy roads (the so called strade bianche, white routes), but it gives the visitor the feel of going back into time, and breathe history. .
