Here is what you will live

Nestled in the heart of the winemaking region of Chianti Classico, Villa Mangiacane is located just 12km south of Florence andt it's set within 600 acres of flourishing vineyards and olive groves. Villa Mangiacane takes great pride in Art & History as it makes this place simply amazing. From the centuries old frescoes, to the exquisite Shona sculptures from Zimbabwe – the villa has a plethora of artwork both new and old by talented individuals for you to observe throughout your experience. 

The name originated from Latin “Magna Cane” which literally translates to “Great Dog”. The estate spans 306 hectares situated between San Casciano Val di Pesa and Greve in Chianti, at an altitude of 250-300 meters. 15 of the 43 hectares of vineyards were planted in the 1980’s with 3500 plants/hectare, and 28 were replanted after 2001 with 5500 plants/hectare. The company started their premium wine in 2001 and after an extensive modernization, a new cellar has been constructed and new vineyards have been planted.

Wines are produced following an authentic “Chianti” style, representing a perfect mix of ancient tradition and modern concepts of wine making. Villa Mangiacane produces several kinds of Chianti Classico and Igt wines. The timeless passion and definitive traditions of the Chianti area, together with innovative vinicultural and winemaking techniques, allow the winery to produce wines of exceptional quality and character.
