This charming estate consists of 82 hectares of land, five of which are Sangiovese vineyard (for production of Chianti Classico D.O.C.G.), a main house, guesthouse and wine cellar.
The estate is situated in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, and is neighboured by some of the most prestigious vineyards in Italy. The property has recently undergone a complete refurbishment and modernisation. The owner's choice to use local Tuscan artisans and high quality materials is apparent as the house has retained its authentic Tuscan character, whilst now also offering luxurious surroundings and state of the art facilities.
Main House & Guesthouse
The private road that leads to the property has been recently maintained and is in very good condition. The main house offers circa 500 sq.m of space divided between 3 spacious bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms, a study, lounge area, laundry room and large kitchen. The guesthouse is attached to the main house, and offers a further bedroom and bathroom. There is also a charming cantina (ground floor) which could be used as a wine cellar, gym or office. The property is surrounded by a circa 4000 sqm of garden, with a beautiful infinity pool finished in mosaic tile. The garden and pool area border with the surrounding vineyard and the views are breathtaking.
The Chianti area in which this property is located is widely known and accepted to have the perfect conditions for wine production, both in terms of soil composition and weather. This estate accounts for a total agricultural surface of circa 80 Ha (198 acres), out of which circa 5ha. is devoted to vineyards, and circa 5ha is rangeland (pasture and arable land) the remaining 70 ha consists of Oak and chestnut forest.
The vineyards are officially part of the Chianti Classico D.O.C.G. appellation. All formal papers related to public control institutions are updated and correct (iscrizione all'albo del Chianti Classico, catasto vigneti AGEA, denuncia di produzione etc).
The Wine Cellar & Facilities
The newly built 900 sq.m wine cellar consists of a fermentation cellar, ageing cellar, tractor garage/storeroom, independent apartment (currently used by the custodian), and a large open-plan area on the first floor which could be used as tasting rooms, office space or even converted into an apartment (by application to local authority). The wine cellar already offers one charming apartment which is currently used by the custodian. The cellar is equipped with state of the art temperature controlled fermentation tanks, and is equipped with all the necessary machines and tools required for wine production.
The fermentation, the ageing process and the storage of the bottled goods all take place in the new cellar. The dimensions of fermentation cellar (312 sq. Meter) and ageing cellar (118 sq. Meter) were designed purposely to offer an efficient work area. The cellar can support a potential increase in production, as extra space is available. Both the fermentation cellar and the ageing room benefit from a modern temperature control system to ensure the perfect environment for the various process.
