Chianti Wines from the Fattoria di San Michele a Torri
The agricultural estate "Fattoria San Michele a Torri Srl", set amongst vineyards and olive groves, is situated 15km from Florence, in the middle of the "Chianti" wine producing area, at an altitude of 211 metres above sea level. Covering an area of 200 hectares of land, of which approximately 50 hectares occupied by vineyards, 30 by olive groves and the remaining land by cereal crops and woodlands, Fattoria di San Michele practically straddles the two appellation areas "Chianti Colli Fiorentini" and "Chianti Classico".
This is a habitat particularly suited to winemaking, which produces smooth, perfumed wines of great character.
Paolo Nocentini, the current owner of the estate, has injected new life therein and has renewed and expanded the cultivation activities, directing them towards organic farming methods.
