Vagliagli

South of Castellina lies the scenic hamlet of Vagliagli, perfectly placed for the southern end of the Chianti wine route. This once fortified outpost is surrounded by beguiling wine estates that also date back to medieval times. The sleepy 13th-century hamlet is named after the `valley of garlic’ it surveys, with today’s views more of valleys and hilltops. Admire the handsome, stone-built village and parish church before setting off on a hiking trail, cycle ride or a picnic in the vineyards. The wine-tasting experience may be central to Valgliagli but the hamlet is also a stepping stone to the Chianti strongholds of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole. These beacons of small-town Chianti life are awash with temping wine and food shops linked to local estates. Together, this trio of tiny towns offer enough culture to make a change from estate-visiting. From medieval churches to small archaeological collections, it’s Tuscany in miniature.
