To the north you will find a land of impressive panoramas, green rolling hills, expansive areas of vineyards dotted with wineries, dark green olive groves, and small medieval hamlets scattered all around the area. This area is also known as the very famous Chianti Classico region, where some of the best red wine in Italy is produced.
