Chianti is the second northern-most of the wine spires, a group of four granite pinnacles along the north ridge of Silver Star.

Getting There 

From a small pullout ~2 miles east of the hairpin turn on hwy 20, descend to the creek over talus and rock, then pick up a climber's trail which switchbacks up to Burgundy Col.
