For generations the Stucchi Prinetti family have been producing Chianti Classico on the estate for both the domestic and international market. The idea to introduce another traditional product of the region was realized by Piero Stucchi Prinetti. His foresight and skill transformed the property into a modern estate which now includes a hotel, restaurant, cooking school, vineyards, and olive groves. A historic agriturismo destination in the heart of Tuscany. His children are involved in all aspects of the estate and continue the tradition of producing the finest wines and extra virgin olive oils of the region.
