Junction of Canvalle

This small junction starts directly near the Vin Osteria in the hamlet of la Villa, in Radda in Chianti.

The trail passes through the last houses of the hamlet and the first cultivated fields of the nearby farms. After finishing the descent, it climbs rapidly in the direction of Canvalle, whose tower can be spotted from some distance away.
