Chianti Orange is the flagship of Piccini wines. The orange label marks a unique moment not only in the history of Piccini family, but also in the history of Chianti in the world: it marks the first modern image of Chianti for the 21st century. For the first time, in 2000 the Chianti label was simple to the point of minimalism. But the real CHANGE was brought up by the color: ORANGE is a family legacy as it symbolizes all the energy, youth and passion that characterize our family.
