Main House & Guesthouse
Located a few kilometres from one of the Chianti's main towns, this property offers a unique opportunity to own a Chianti Wine Estate, which is relatively small and manageable. The property has been completely refurbished in 2013 by a renound local interior designer, who sourced traditionally Tuscan materials from selected local artisans. The style and ambience is modern and comfortable yet true to the history and character of the building. 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, guest bathroom and spacious 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 1000 sq.m wine cellar consists of a fermentation sala, ageing cellar, tractor garage/storeroom, office and a large open-plan area on the first floor which could be used as tasting rooms, office space or for entertainment. The cellar is equipped with state of the art, temperature controlled fermentation tanks, and is equipped with all the necessary machinery and equipment required for wine production.
The cellar can support a potential increase in production, as much of the space is yet to be used.
Guest House or Staff house
There is a second guest apartment situated above the wine cellar, which is currently used by the estate custodian.
