Tenuta Il PalazzoWhat today looks like the Estate Il Palazzo has been over the years a stopping point for travelers, because of its location along the ancient Via Ariminensis or Salt Road which connected Rome to Rimini. Later it was a source of employment for the inhabitants of the area. The company was divided into four farms where four patriarchal families of 55 people lived and worked. Around the 60's the industrial development absorbed agricultural workers and turned them into workers causing the exodus from the countryside. This also happened to our company, which became depopulated between 1965 and 1970. Since 1971 Banelli’s has started managing the company and hiring wage laborers. In 1976 the two owners Mrs. Anna Maria Banelli and her husband Primo began to restore the hamlet of the Estate recovering its original architectural value and at the same time devoting to the farmhouse. There were important land improvements such as the irrigation systems, an artificial reservoir to collect rainwater to be used to irrigate crops during the summer. All this has improved and maintained steady income, focusing on the expansion of new more profitable. crops Here is the implementation of the most modern olive groves and vineyards. In 2005 a very modern cellar was realized in the farm, where ancient materials such as brick and stone come together in harmony with a cutting-edge wine-making technology. Over 105 acres, the property stands on a high hill 300-400 meters above sea level. In the center part there is the medieval hamlet with the swimming – pool, the farmhouse surrounded by 35 hectares of vineyards, 6,000 olive trees, woods and arable land.

Villa Loggio Winery and Boutique HotelVilla Loggio Winery and Boutique Hotel is located in the southern part of the Cortona municipality on a country estate that once belonged to the aristocratic family Venuti of Cortona. The complex dates back to the seventeenth century and consists of the main villa, for which the winery is named, and two historical farms situated on nearly 100 hectares of land, much of which is cultivated for wine production. Poised on a range of undulating hills that rise above the Chiana Valley, the Winery’s situation forms the perfect location for viticulture and creates an ideal oenological environment: the fields bask in sunshine from early morning until late evening, the summer nights are cool and mild, and a soothing breeze caresses the vineyards. Throughout history, Villa Loggio has been subtly and enthrallingly intertwined with prominent families and activities. Today, the winery continues to be an important estate associated with Tuscany’s venerable wine culture and the history of the city of Cortona. Villa Loggio’s location is outstandingly situated. Tuscany is recognised as a region optimally suited to growing grapes. The hilly terroirs are especially well-suited for producing red wines; the flatter terroirs are ideal for producing white wines with a robust structure. The texture of the soil varies from sandy to clayish, and there is a low level of organic matter. During the development phase, a soil assessment of Villa Loggio’s hilly locations was conducted that revealed a more loamy sand soil ideally for Cabernet and Syrah. On average, there is less rainfall and a warmer temperature in the area surrounding Villa Loggio than elsewhere in Tuscany. This is due to its close proximity to Trasimeno Lake, and the higher Apennine Mountains sheltering the area against rainfall. Villa Loggio is dedicated to the creation of world-class wines.

Villa La RipaIn a gorgeous Renaissance villa, built on the hill of Pecognano, the art of vineyard has been handed down for centuries. The first owner was Marco Peconio (2nd century a.C.). His name came from Pacho, the Etruscan god of wine, best known with the Latin name of Bacchus. After a century the property passed to the Ricoveri Family who raised a fortified building with attached tower, still visible nowadays. The current shape of the villa is ascribed to the Gualtieri Family, an important lineage of poets, cardinals and wine-growers who acquired it in the Renaissance and registered it in the Order of Saint Stephen’s name. In the nineteenth century, after Napoleon’s troops invaded Arezzo, the villa was sequestered and put up for sale by auction. Then the Ubertini family acquired it. They were a noble Aretine family whose most famous member was Guglielmo degli Ubertini, the leader of Aretine soldiers in the great battle against Florence: Campaldino. At the beginning of the last century the property passed to the Bucchi family who further developed olive-groves and vine growing. They planted the oldest vineyard which is still in the estate. Then is the turn of the Luzzi Family who wanted to remain along the local traditional path of wine-growing and wine-producing, aiming at wine quality. Two great products are made: Tiratari, the name was personally chosen by the householder’s daughter Claudia and Psyco easily associated to the medical profession of the householder.

Tenimenti Luigi d'Alessandro Tenimenti d’Alessandro is an historic winery in the Val di Chiana. After years of research, we are realizing Syrah true vocation for Cortona terroir that perfectly express the optimal relationship between the soil and the vine. Everyday we celebrate a profound connection with this enchanting land through the rigorous pursuit of excellence. This mission requires a complete dedication to the vineyards followed by accurate winemaking techniques, looking for the highest expression of Cortona wines. Tenimenti d’Alessandro is also a place where to experience first-hand the harvest, sharing efforts and satisfactions with winemakers and vintners, right to the creation of a great wine. The only treatments implemented in the vineyards are the ones based on sulfur and copper. Then, just light processing up to the cellar, where we respect the variety and the local characteristics of both must and wine. We have an holistic and "customized" idea of each grapevine, looked after in order to self-regulate the growth and to prevent diseases. For this reason, since the harvest of 2013, we work in accordance with the organic principles, and in 2016, after a three-year phase of conversion, the company will obtain an organic certification. The land has already proved itself incline to change. A micro-biological "resurrection" of soil and a physiological rebirth of plants made the green of leaves brighter, the soil damper and inhabited, the clusters more autonomous, combative, balanced. The best answer we could expect, which motivates the desire to work a vital land and gather rich grapes in order to be respectfully transformed into wine. All that to make an authentic representation of our country and proudly show our efforts

Tenuta San Jacopo In Castiglioni SrlBeautiful colonial houses and a cellar arise on a spectacular hill, preciously carved by avenuse of cypresses, pinewoods and groups of oaks. I30 Hectares of vineyards, olive groves and woods between Chianti Classico and Valdarno valley, regain its old prestige by the vision and the bravery of our family. Three brothers from Milan, Vanni, Carlo and Marco Cattaneo bought this estate in 2002 with the wish to bring it back to its former glory combining the local traditions of Tuscany with the pragmatic northern culture of Lombardy. Their aim is to produce “great” wines, elegant and refined, respecting the special terroir of the vineyards. Using modern technology, not only in the winery but also to produce olive oil from the stunning olive groves surrounding the villa. The whole project is designed to exalt the local beauty and provide a very special place to spend a few days holiday. First steps were to renew and replant some of the existing vineyards. After careful planning the vineyards where uprooted and the land then deep ploughed. Second step was to fertilize and prepare the ground following soil analysis. The certified young vines were then planted and finally the supporting wires and chestnut posts were put in. At the same time the existing vineyards have all been helped back into shape by replacing missing vines and posts. Perfect exposure, the combination of different soils, microclimates and vineyards density, which may reach 6000 plants per hectare, all are complimented with modern precision manual work.
