Description

The Viticcio Estate stands amidst a rustic complex, charmingly situated on the gentle and sunny ridge of a hillside, overlooking sloping vineyards with superb sun exposure, above the picturesque, ancient town of Greve in Chianti. It lies midway between the cities of Florence and Siena, in the heart of Chianti Classico region.

The history of Viticcio is actually the history of the Landini family which, in the early 1960s became the owner of the winery. The founder, Lucio Landini, an engineer, was also a man deeply attached to Tuscan tradition, the Chianti soil and its products. During a time of great economic crisis Lucio and his wife Franca, compelled to undertake the risky financial venture of starting up a winery, decided to aim high and count primarily on exportation. From these modest beginnings the focus remains the same today - the production of high quality wines worthy of an expert international clientele.

Viticcio in now owned and managed by Alessandro Landini who, by following in his father's footsteps, is the epitome of a new class of wine entrepreneurs. His work philosophy can be summed up in the three fundamental characteristics; passion for viticulture and the techniques and science of wine-making, competence, and professionalism. Alessandro obtained his degree in Business Economics (with a thesis on the Economics of Chianti ) and then dedicated himself entirely to the wine business.

The Estate, with more than 30 hectares of specialized vines, has undergone several transformations. The vines have been restructured, respecting DOC and DOCG regulations and modified, increasing the variety of vines. In addition, the winery has been renovated to include the most modern, cutting-edge technology.

The use of barriques has been part of the winemaking technique since 1985. Barriques are used with discretion and competence - without excessive introduction of vanilla and spices originating from the oak. Furthermore, we have experimented and acquired new methods of cultivating vines which are traditional in the Chianti region and others which are not. The result of these sophisticated experiments, Viticcio's "Supertuscans" - the IGT wines Monile and Prunaio, have had ample and increasing success throughout the world.

The first grape harvest dates back to 1964 with the production of less than 20.000 bottles. Viticcio wines, characterized by their exceptional quality, are now sold in Europe, North America and Japan. Despite the inevitable increase in production over the years, our establishment continues to be conducted as a "family business", enlivened and blessed by the presence of five lovely women (mother, wife and 3 daughters) to whom the names of some products and vacation apartments have been attributed.

At Viticcio, you will find wine-makers whose respect for tradition and advanced technology meet and intertwine with harmony and professionalism while maintaining a watchful eye on the environment.

Viticcio means "tendril" in English and is symbolic of the company's cautious and steady growth, emulating the tendril continually grappling its way to new heights.

Surrounded by vineyards in the beautiful Tuscan countryside, Fattoria Viticcio is situated in the Chianti Classico area about 30 minutes south of Florence and 40 minutes from Siena. Perched on the top of the hill, it overlooks the ancient town of Greve in Chianti. The agriturismo (farm accomodation) is situated in the main estate building in a typical Tuscan property that has been specially renovated and tastefully fumished. Besides offering a taste of the countryside and fine traditional things, we offer a full range of living comforts for the discerning traveller. A pleasant swimming pool, combined with plenty of opportunities for sight-seing, walking and biking, will make your stay more enjoyable. Open all year round.
