Radda in ChiantiRadda in Chianti is the vineyard village. From the high ground on which it was built in the middle ages, between the waters of the rivers Arbia and Pesa, you gaze over a very dense interweave of vineyards. The centre of the village, dominated from above by the remains of the original castle, is Piazza Ferrucci.
Don’t miss the view over the alleys of the old centre and the vegetable gardens, surrounded by dry stone walling, which supply the essence of Chianti:
agriculture in the form of design of the landscape in a natural order of men and things. No other place than Radda would have been right for the headquarters of the Foundation for the Safeguarding of Chianti Classico Territory, which will be housed in the monastery complex of Santa Maria a Prato, just outside the walls. A very precious poliptych by Neri di Biccibelonged to the monastery church.
