Tradition meets creativity in the heart of Chianti
Winner of the 2016 "Best of show" for the Chianti category at Mundus Vini
Overlooking Florence, the Villa Mangiacane Estate spans 306 hectares situated between San Casciano Val Di Pesa and Greve in Chianti, at an altitude of 250-300 meters. Of the 43 hectares of vineyards, 15 were planted in the 1980's with 3500 plants/hectare, and 28 were replanted after 2001 with 5500 plants/hectare. The diversity of soils and exposures, to the East and North East in San Casciano, and to the South in Greve, generate different microclimates and guarantee the production of wines with great complexity and personality.
Whilst Mangiacane has been around for 500 years, we started our premium wine in 2001 and after extensive modernization, constructed a new cellar and planted the new vineyards. Our wines are produced following an authentic Tuscan "Chiantigiano" style, representing a perfect mix of ancient tradition and modern concepts of wine making. Villa Mangiacane produces mainly Chianti Classico DOCG wines, but also produces IGT wines (typical geographical indication). The timeless passion and definitive traditions of the Chianti area, together with innovative viticultural and winemaking techniques, allow us to produce wines of exceptional quality and character.
