There was a time when each town of the region was thought to simply produce "Chianti" in the eyes of consumers, but those days are long gone. The Chianti Classico sub-zone (which represents the best terroir, and the original boundaries drawn up in 1716) has regained serious international renown and is now competing with the best of Brunello di Montalcino and the highest-end Sangiovese based Super Tuscans. The best part is that prices have yet to catch up– at least for now.
