Description

Overlooking on the old medieval road to Greve, the Villa of Calcinaia owes its present look to the Capponi family, who bought it in 1524. The estate is located in the very heart of the Chianti region, 2 Km from Greve, 21 Km from Florence and 50 Km from Siena. At present the Villa is placed at the end of a cypress-lined drive and surrounded by 150 hectares of land, which include woods, vineyards and olive-groves. In the cellars of the Villa an excellent Chianti Classico is produced, as well as olive oil , vin santo and grappa. From the Italian style garden one can admire the delightful Tuscan landscape, the old farm houses belonging to the estate some of wich have been converted in comfortable agriturist residences.
