This is the authentic area for the production of Chianti Classico DOCG, an historical wine marked by the unmistakable pink label with the symbol of the Black Rooster on gold background which, over the years, has continued to maintain its valuable characteristics. The property is located a just 2 kilometres from Greve, a picturesque borgo famous for its large central piazza, Il Mercatale, which since ancient times has hosted fairs, markets and cultural events, overlooked by historic buildings of particular artistic importance, such as the neo-Renaissance Town Hall and the Church of Santa Croce, with a 14th fresco depicting the Virgin and Child and a triptych by Bicci di Lorenzo, dated 1420. Strolling along the porticoes that surround it are craftman's shops, wine bars and restaurants offering local produce and culinary specialities. A few paces away from the central piazza is the Museum of Sacred Art and the Wine Museum which, in addition to the exhibition of a number of typical tools for the production of wine and a remarkable collection of corkscrews, offers a tasting of about 200 different wines, for each of which is given a computerized explanation. About 2 km away is the tiny borgo of Montefioralle, the birthplace of the navigator Amerigo Vespucci, a must if you want to appreciate the unique panorama seen from the hill.
