The Tuscany region

Gaiole in Chianti

Gaiole has developed in length along the valley of the Massellone river, an ideal place for meetings and markets since ancient times and it originates from this peculiar territorial characteristic. In fact, the hills bordering the valley were populated even before the year 1000 AD, and “peoples” of these villages in the “highlands”, descending down to the valley to meet and do business, gave birth to the settlement that later became the main center of the entire valley. Notary documents dating back to 1215 indicate its importance as a market place; its role further grew with the creation of the “Chianti League” in 1300, when Gaiole became the “terzieri” (three rulerships) capital along with Castellina and Radda. Leagues were an instrument of administrative-political division of rural areas under Florence, they were supposed to provide troops and money if needed.

The territory of Gaiole was the borderland between Florence and Siena for four centuries and, consequently, a target for raids and loots until Siena’s final fall in 1555.

The League system remained in place under the Medici and Lorena families until 1776, when the “terzieri” were transformed in the current municipalities.
