At an altitude of 550m in the Chianti hills, Muricciaglia is located in the heart of an area long esteemed for the quality of its grapevines, above all the Sangiovese vine, probably indigenous to Tuscany. Sangiovese is of ancient origin, as the literal translation of its name “Blood of Jove” suggests.

In Muricciaglia we have close to 1.5 hectares of Sangiovese classified for “Chianti Classico” wine. Taking care of the vines, the grapes and their harvest is very demanding. That is why we have declined to go into an additional step of work. We sell the grapes to third parties.

We devote most of our time to the olive trees and the production of “extra virgin” olive oil.
