Today’s wines are able to combine tradition with originality. It was here, in one of Italy’s oldest wineries, that the first “Chianti experiments” were carried out, and today as then, the magic of winemaking continues with passion and dedication. Guided by experts in the field, you will not only learn about all the different stages that transform grapes into wine, but also taste the results. A tasting eight metres underground, where you will be entranced by the evocative surroundings. A journey back in time to savour the flavours and scents of bygone days.
Customization is our focus: searching out and developing original offers is an integral part of the estate’s philosophy.
