The homestead, built on a hillock, overlooks an absolute intact landscape.  The position is very strategic: close to the most important Tuscan cities of art, about a half hour from Florence, Siena, and San Gimignano, less than 15 minutes from Castellina in Chianti (11 km) and Tavernelle Val di Pesa (11 km). The Florence- Siena motorway junction is just 7 km away and the Florence Peretola airport is 51 km away.  The complex, which dates back to medieval times, was originally a watchtower, thereafter arose a manor house with outbuildings (for 1,089 mq) and farmhouses (for a total of about 815 mq). The surrounding area stretches out on 46 hectares of private land that are within the Chianti D.O.C. area. The park surrounding the buildings is embellished with a spectacular Italian garden and a beautiful panoramic swimming pool.  Protected by mighty walls, the ancient manor house is laid out on two levels. The ground floor has a large kitchen with fireplace, a dining room, a large living room with high coffered ceilings, a study, a bathroom, and a bedroom.  The first floor is used as sleeping quarters, comprised of 5 large bedrooms and a bathroom.  The basement level has a handsome lounge for wine tasting, connected to the ancient vaulted cellar which was once where the decanting vats and oak barrels for storing wine were kept.  The farmhouses host 4 living units used for rental purposes (18 beds), plus common areas including a reception area, 2 breakfast rooms and kitchen, a sitting room, and 2 bathrooms.  The 46 hectares of land are employed as follows:  - A productive vineyard covers 8 hectares of land with 15 and 25 year old vines producing excellent white and red grapes, which are then processed on the estate. 3 fine wines are produced in the cellar of the Manor House:  Chianti classico (the grapes are hand-picked and then processed using traditional Tuscan techniques and aged in 20 hectoliter oak barrels from Slavonia for about 6 months. The wine is then transferred to French 5.5 and 2.2 hectoliter oak barrels and aged for another 6 months); White table wine (produced with 70 percent Malvasia del Chianti grapes and 30 percent Trebbiano Toscano grapes); Vin Santo is produced using Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes that are left to dry in the “Vinsantaia” ( a special cellar where Vin Santo is made).  -20 hectares of cultivated land for grains with a small olive grove for the family production of extra virgin olive oil.  -18 hectares of coppiced woodlands.     The position is very strategic: close to the most important Tuscan cities of art, about a half hour from Florence, Siena, and San Gimignano, less than 15 minutes from Castellina in Chianti (11 km) and Tavernelle Val di Pesa (11 km).
