What country brings to mind more visions of romance, more images of breathtaking vineyards, and more scents of mouth-watering food than Italy? In Journey to the Chianti: Getting to Know an Ancient Tuscan Region, Leonardo Castellucci explores a growing Tuscan region of Italy with an unforgettable name: the Chianti. Castellucci brings this region to life through fascinating insights into the regions history and a look at the culture and life today.
CastellucciÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â€šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â€žÃ‚Â¢s insight on the local history and character of the Chianti region itself are enough to fascinate and inspire; to add to the impact, the stunning pictures by photographer Gian Luigi Scarfiotti capture the readerÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â€šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â€žÃ‚Â¢s imagination. The vibrant colors of the Chianti regionÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â€šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â€žÃ‚Â¢s famous vineyards captured in the bookÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â€šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â€žÃ‚Â¢s exceptional photography show why this region is beloved by Italians and Americans alike.
The Chianti region has fascinated American travelers for decades and is a must-see tourist spot for everyone visiting the Tuscan region. Chianti is located in the middle of--and serves as a transition between--the medieval city of Sienna and renaissance city of Florence. Because it is a crossroads between these two vibrant and historic cities, it contains a rich melding of history itself.
Journey to the Chianti: Getting to Know an Ancient Tuscan Region is the perfect addition to every traveler's or wine aficionadoÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â€šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â€žÃ‚Â¢s collection. Chianti is ItalyÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â€šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â€žÃ‚Â¢s most renowned wine, and Castellucci shows us why with a wonderful overview of its production processes, history, and little known facts such as that Chianti used to be a white wine instead of red. This is a rare beauty of a book that will be treasured by book lovers, travelers, "foodies," wine aficionados, and lovers of all things Italian alike.
