Exclusive 85.6-hectare wine estate with medieval castle and private chapel for sale on the Chianti Hills, just 30’ from Florence. The imposing (over 2,000 m²) revolves around a central courtyard and houses 25 bedrooms for guest accommodation. The vineyard (roughly 12.0 ha, mostly Chianti DOCG) allows producing up to 150,000 bottles of wine, but one could easily reach 300,000 by planting new vines.

Producing farm selling its vine grapes, olive oil and Vin Santo, the estate includes the castle, currently running as accommodation business, but ideal also as representative residence.

The property has no cellar at the moment, which means that grapes are processed in other places.

 

DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS

Arranged around an internal courtyard, ideal location for events, this stunning castle (1,920 m² – 20,659 ft²) is disposed on four floors, plus a panoramic tower boasting a breathtaking view over the Chianti hills. In the basement are the old wine cellar and oil storage (360 m² – 3,874 ft²). On the ground floor there are cozy sitting rooms and living areas, professional kitchens, rest rooms and storages. On the mezzanine, first and second floors there are sitting rooms and bedrooms. Nineteen charming bedrooms with en suite bathroom are currently used as guest accommodation (inside the castle there are a total of 25 bedrooms and 33 bathrooms).

Just outside the walls of the castle, there is a beautiful Romanesque-style church (120 m² – 1,291 ft²) usable for private ceremonies.

 

 

EXTERIORS

Surrounded by vineyards and olive grove, the property is immersed in the Tuscan countryside of Chianti and covers a total 85.6 hectares (211.5 acres).

 

The vineyard (12.0 ha) is mostly registered as Chianti DOCG (10.0 ha) with a small portion of Toscana IGT (2.0 ha) and is made up of Sangiovese, Malvasia, Trebbiano, Canaiolo and Colorino vines. Yearly production ranges between 75,000 and 150,000 bottles, but one could increase this numbero to 300,000 by converting further 15.0 hectares of arable land into vineyards.

 

The olive grove (3.0 ha) has only Leccino trees and could produce up to 4,000 kg of extra-virgin olive oil.

 

The remaining surface is entirely covered by courtyards (0.5 ha), woods (35.4 ha) and arable land (34.7 ha) with the possibility of planting more vines and/or other crops.

Chianti is a historical region of Tuscany comprising the provinces of Florence, Siena and Arezzo. Characterized by hills covered with vineyards and woods, the area has always been devoted to the production of exceptional wines, known throughout the world and really a symbol of Tuscany abroad.

Originally comprising the territories of only three towns (Gaiole, Radda and Castellina) that made up the so-called Lega del Chianti, the area has expanded over the centuries to include large portions of the territories of Siena, Florence and even Arezzo.

The territory is rather homogeneous in terms of geological characteristics, while in terms of climate, there are significant temperature variations over the course of the year with hot summers and generally harsh winters: while these characteristics are unsuitable for normal crops, vines find in Chianti an ideal environment in which to thrive.

 

 

Halfway between Florence (35 km) and Siena (48 km), it is located in a secluded but at the same time easy accessible location, only 1 km from the nearest village with shops and 11 km from Certaldo, picturesque Etruscan town.
