Chianti Classico seal, recently changed in 2013, is a black rooster (Gallo Nero in Italian) on a white background with a bordeaux colored frame. Legend has it that in 13th century Florence and Siena decided to use a horse race to end their land dispute over Chianti. The meeting point of two knights, who had left respectively from Florence and Siena when the rooster sang at dawn, would mark the new borders of their territories.
THE GRASSI’S FAMILY
Our family, the Grassi’s, is an old sienese family dating back to the Middle Ages.
Members of this family have for centuries been important representatives of the government, administration and army of the Sienese Republic – to this day the family coat of arms is still visible in Siena city hall – and we represent the last generation of a family that has lived permanently in this unique Tuscan borgo for over 250 years.
