Description

Villa del Cigliano is located in ‘San Casciano in Val di Pesa’, the most northern sub zone of the Chianti Classico, a few km south of Florence. Owned by the same family since 1543, the estate covers 60 hc of which 25 hc are vineyards (located 300m asl), planted on sand and silty clay soils, with limestone pebbles. This historic Antinori family owned property, was built as a traditional farmstead, to produce wine, vin santo and olive oil and still retains the original Renaissance majolicas by ceramic artist Giovanni della Robbia (1469–1529), depicting the Antinori and Tornabuoni coats of arms. Despite a N to NE exposure, it always tends to yield the estate’s healthiest and highest quality grapes, with the perfect balance of sugar and phenolic ripeness.
