Wine and Oil
The cultivation of the grapevine and the production of the wine today represent one of the best motive of our region economy. Many of the best producers of Chianti wine harvest the grape for their wine on these hills. Some of the wines of this area are the Chianti wines, made according to the regulation with 75-90% of Sangiovese, 5-10% of black Cannaiolo, 2-10% of Trebbiano and Malvasia, 10% of other red grape, with ruby colour and wine fragrance, sometimes with violet sense.
The legislation of the 1932 divided the territory of Barberino Val d'Elsa in an area belongs to the Chianti Classico and an area belongs to Chianti Colli Fiorentini and one to Chianti. The area of Poneta, Vico d'Elsa, Sant'Appiano belongs to Chianti Colli Fiorentini. They have century time-honoured traditions of the grape cultivation. Today, after some years of abandonment, have a quality constant improvement.
