It was in 1924 when 33 producers came together in Radda in Chianti to establish the Consorzio del Chianti Classico, with the aim of defending Chianti wine and its historical provenance. Over the years, producers have united under the banner of the Black Rooster, once the symbol of the Lega Militare (military league) of Chianti, to respect strict production guidelines that start from the type of grapes that can be used to make Chianti: at least 80% Sangiovese, followed by Canarino or Canaiolo for the native grape varieties, or Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. If the Rooster is Black, the wine is ruby red and garnet, unmistakeable, like the aromas of violet, iris, prunes, black cherries and blackberries of the Consorzio Chianti Classico wine. At the Mercato Centrale Firenze, the Consorzio’s wine shore offers its producers’ labels alongside a wide selection of wines by the glass, from whites to rosé to the must-have red. “A man who drinks only water has a secret to hide from his fellow men,” Baudelaire said. Here there are no secrets, just the high quality that Tuscany and Italy take pride in.
