Castello di Ama
CHIANTI - the Black Rooster

The Chianti region, extending roughly over the two main city provinces of Firenze and Siena in central Italy. The tradition of cultivating vines in Chianti started before the Roman Empire. The blend for Chianti and Chianti Classico is 75–100% Sangiovese. The Chianti DOC title was created in 1967, and in 1984 was promoted to the highest level of Italian wine classification DOCG.

Within the Chianti DOCG there are 8 defined sub-zones, producing the largest volume of DOC/G wines in Italy. Wines produced outside these vineyards are labelled simply "Chianti". Only Chianti from sub-zones may boast the black rooster seal (known in Italian as a gallo nero) on the neck of the bottle.
