Chianti, just 30 minutes from Florence, we find this little jewel of Azienda Agricola that we present for sale. The buildings are located in the center of the property, surrounded by over four hectares of land with olive trees, fruit trees and 1.8 hectares of Chianti Classico DOC vineyard. The house preserves the typical architectural features of the ancient Tuscan farmhouse, with its large spaces connected to the garden, the stone loggia, the barn, the oven, the fireplaces and the ancient cellars. The main entrance opens onto a double living room connected to the loggia with ancient oven, to the large dining room and kitchen with fireplace and terrace, large cellar with pantry and laundry room. Also in the living area, a large bathroom, the large loggia and the hallway area - wardrobe that connects to the upper floor. The sleeping area can also be reached by means of the original external staircase, typical of Tuscan farmhouses, thanks to which the House is designed for easy subdivision into two residential units. Overall, the sleeping area consists of five bedrooms with three bathrooms, all distributed around the living room with fireplace, originally the ancient Cucina del Casale. The barn is currently a warehouse, directly overlooking the garden and enjoys a beautiful view. The garden is particularly pleasant and flat, home to ancient cypresses and fruit trees, completely surrounds the house giving total privacy and harmony. Renovated in the 1980s with respect to Tuscan architecture, in 2010 the roofs were subject to extraordinary maintenance work (insulation) and recently the heating system (diesel) was adapted to current regulations. Perfectly maintained, every year the gardens and buildings are subject to continuous maintenance by the Owners, fleeing the city, they have chosen the property as their main residence in the 90s.
The "Chianti" is a land of ancient wine traditions of which there are Etruscan and Roman testimonies. But the first documents in which the name Chianti identifies an area of wine production (and also the wine produced) date back to the 13th century, and refer to the Lega del Chianti established in Florence to regulate administrative relations with Radda third parties, Gaiole and Castellina (currently included in the Chianti Classico production area), producers of a red wine based on Sangiovese. The sign of the Lega del Chianti was a Gallo Nero in a golden field, and this symbol has become the emblem of the Chianti Classico Wine Consortium; one of the two Chianti protection associations. The other is the Chianti Wine Consortium. The first notary document in which the name Chianti appears to refer to the wine produced in this area dates back to 1398.
