Radda in Chianti

The ancient heart of Chianti

Sitting at a table on the outdoor terrace of some farm or farmhouse, we contemplate at the sunset light the enchanting panorama of the Chianti territory. On the table a bottle just uncorked of that full-bodied red juice that takes its name from the hills where it is born.
Radda, located in the heart of this territory, is part of a landscape shaped by the slow action of the hand of the man, the result of the dynamic relationship between nature and culture and for that this becomes the dwelling of a community and its history.
The village, historically extreme defensive bulwark of the boundaries of Florence towards the Sienese territory, has not experienced changes in the urban system in the course of the centuries, maintaining the beautiful elliptic plant, marked by the walls and by the traces of two ancient access ports. It offers itself the visitor letting him pass quickly along the winding main street but leaves us the possibility of a journey more meditated in the network of alleys, which lead to the discovery of the most hidden corners.
Of absolute importance, just outside the village you can find the former convent of Santa Maria al Prato, today house of the Foundation for the Protection of the Territory of the Chianti Classico, with the Church of origin fourteenth century which houses a beautiful wooden altarpiece late fifteenth century, the work of the painter Neri di Bicci, depicting the Virgin on the throne with the Child, flanked by the Saints Nicholas, Giovanni Battista, Maddalena and Antonio Abate.
