The ice cream (gelato) made and sold at the geletaria L’ Antica Delizia in Castellina in Chianti is commonly said to be the best you can get in Chianti, better even than any in Florence. I have to agree with that assessment. Not only is each flavour sublime but the range of flavours is large, constantly changing and highly original.
L’ Antica Delizia is located on the corner of the main road coming from Florence (Via Chiantigiana), just before you enter Castellina. There’s plenty of parking so if you’re anywhere near Castellina or travelling along the Chiantigiana, take a few minutes break to choose and enjoy a fabulous gelato!
