Podere La Villa

Tuscany, Italy

Despite the quiet, rural feel, we are very strategically located, just 18 km southwest of Florence.
The estate lies nestled in Chianti’s hills, 350 meters above sea level, and has a total of 10 hectares (25 acres), which include vineyards, olive groves, woods and a small lake. The 7 hectares (17 acres) of vineyards are in the Chianti Classico wine region and comprise Sangiovese grapes (80%) and Merlot grapes (20%). We have adopted sustainable farming techniques, although we are not yet certified as organic farmers. Our goal is to respect and preserve the surrounding environment as much as possible. All our grapes are hand-picked and produced in limited quantities to obtain the best quality.

We make our own wine from the best parcels of our 7 hectares (17, 30 acres) vineyards around the Villa, as these grapes receive the most sunlight. We sell the remaining grapes to other Tuscan wine estates.

The vineyard is regularly pruned to maintain a low yield per plant and is given only a few protective treatments. We use only very small amounts of approved chemicals and only when strictly necessary.
We make our wine in a nearby wine facility as we are in the process of renovating our own wine cellar!

This is a marvelous Tuscan wine made by Podere La Villa from 100% Merlot and is a tribute to the creator of Super Tuscan wines, Giacomo Tachis. From the exceptional 2016 vintage, it is full bodied and rich, with brilliantly vibrant notes of plums, blackcurrant, Mediterranean herbs, and dried lavender.
