The small town of Panzano in Chianti has known some good, and not so good times. Thrust into the limelight during the constant wars between Siena and Florence, it was destroyed in 1260, and again in 1397. However, today one discovers a confident, dynamic town that offers many delights, both cultural and gastronomic. It is renowned throughout Italy as the location of L’Antica Macelleria Cecchini, a butcher’s shop owned and run by the eccentric Dario Cecchini. You will not sample finer meat in Italy. Meanwhile, don’t leave Panzano without visiting one of Chianti’s most beautiful churches, the Romanesque Pieve di San Leolino, located on a hilltop just outside Panzano in Chianti. It is breathtaking.
