Chianti Classico: The Search for Tuscany's Noblest Wine

by: Bill Nesto MW, Frances Di Savino
This book tells the story of the ancient land named Chianti and the modern wine appellation known as Chianti Classico. In 1716, Tuscany’s penultimate Medici ruler, Cosimo III, anointed the region of Chianti, along with three smaller areas in the Florentine State, as the world’s first legal appellations of origin for wine. In the succeeding centuries, this milestone was all but forgotten. By the late nineteenth century, the name Chianti, rather than signifying this historic region and its celebrated wine, identified a simple Italian red table wine in a straw-covered flask.

Chianti: The Land, the People and the Wine

by: Raymond Flower
This book is an account of the history of the Chianti region, secluded in the hills between Siena and Florence. The book begins with the Etruscans, moving on to the Romans, the Lombards, the factions of the Guelphs and the Ghibellines, the rise of the communes and the struggles between the Empire and the Papacy. In the late Middle Ages, Chianti was the scene of many decisive battles, and many of its medieval buildings were destroyed in the Aragonese invasions of the 15th century. The author is himself a wine grower, and the book evokes the image of the vintage which has been a part of the region since Etruscan times.
