Chianti Colli Fiorentini Wine Trail
Literally, " Florentine hills" north of Chianti Classico,
in the province of Florence.
In 1984 Chianti was upgraded to DOCG, whiche adjusted the blanding formula to include a minimum of only 2 percent white grapes and allowed foreign varieties such as cabernet and merlot to be included in percentages up to 10 percent (in 1996 it changed again, eliminating the minimum for white grapes and upping the amount of foreingn grapes to 15 percent). Further, the DOCG placed tighter restrictions on yields in the vineyards, essentially forcing people to cut excess fruit in the summer to produce more concentrated grapes.
