Chianti is the home of Sangiovese. It’s the one wine most associated with the grape, with millions of bottles finding their ways into homes and hearts every year. The village of Greve is sort of Chianti’s epicenter, home to a classic piazza ringed with a few true standout restaurants and some of the best prosciutto in Italy!
This is a small village, a walking around town and simply a great place to soak in everything that is Sangiovese. From the farmers who grow the grapes to the wineries that produce the wine and the restaurants that sell it, you can not find a better place to follow the pulse of Chianti than Greve.
