The Chianti Classico Card was created in partnership with Firenze Card and the city of Florence, based on and inspired by the same principle. While Firenze Card is an invitation and useful tool to facilitate access to the artistic treasures of the Tuscan capital, the Gallo Nero Card aims to guide tourists through an exploration of one of the fundamental elements of our region’s history and culture: Chianti Classico wine and all the gems of its production territory.
The Chianti Classico Card will be a sort of passe-partout into the world of Gallo Nero. Tourists and wine enthusiasts who buy the Card can choose from over 200 unforgettable and unique experiences, offered by over 100 wine and olive oil estates that have joined the project: tasting Gallo Nero brand products and visiting the artistic and architectural treasures to be found among the breath-taking hillsides of Florence and Siena. Like a precious casket, this one small card contains the whole Gallo Nero world, to be discovered and enjoyed in all its many aspects: culture, history, art and fine quality wine and food.
How the Card works
Chianti Classico Card works on a points system, or “Black Roosters”. At the moment of purchase, tourists can choose different types of Card and each of the 214 experiences offered by the card has a value of 1 to 3 “Black Roosters”. When you purchase the card at the portal card.chianticlassico.com, or the “Chianti Classico Card” App, you will need to activate it by inserting a specific code in the App (sent by email after the online purchase or found on the back of the card). Once this is done, the journey begins: you can book your favourite experiences in the Gallo Nero territory.
Chianti Classico Green Card
For visitors who want to take advantage of the unique experiences offered by Chianti Classico Card but do not have a means of transport to reach the Gallo Nero area, the Consortium has set up a partnership with TiMove, the greencar-sharing platform, to bring wine-lovers to Chianti Classico in zero-impact vehicles.
