Tour to the family winery Fattoria Montellori

An highlight  of the entire holiday in Tuscany!

 

 

The estate where the winery is located has been in the family Nieri since the 1902s.

 

It is situated just below the hilltop village of Fucecchio, 30 Kms from Florence. The vineyard is scattered in the hillside around the small villages of Cerreto Guidi, Empoli and Montalbano.

 

After a century of growing grapes and winemaking from Chianti vines, the Winery's focus remains on varietals that are best suited to this site: Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot for the reds and Chardonnay and Sauvingon for the whites. Over the last 15 years there have been made extensive renovations to this estate.

These renovations have included a complete replanting of the vineyards to close-spaced red varietals and new equipment in the wine cellar with steel inox tanks, a gentle gravity-flow system and an aging room with 250 'Allier' barriques.

 

The 'Fattoria' has been noted for its SPUMANTE 'Metodo Classico', for the magnificent CHIANTI and for its age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Merlot blended Super Tuscans, MORO, DICATUM and SALAMARTANO.

 

Recently we have opened a Restaurant inside of the winery, where our guests,  after a private tour of the vineyards and cellar, can test the wines combined with the best typical Tuscan food.
