The I Tattoli estate has belonged to the Bini family since 1428 in a happy and challenging project of tradition that has endured over time. Twenty minutes from Florence, between the villages of La Romola and Cerbaia, at an altitude of about 180-220 metres, the I Tattoli property extends over 50 hectares, as an urban and rural settlement, in an area probably chosen for its natural wealth of spring waters of vital importance for the community.
Access to the estate is via a long avenue of centuries-old cypress trees that climbs gently up the hillside on which the Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot vines stretch out, which, after harvesting, are processed to make the famous Chianti Classico wine.
On the same slope, to the left, an avenue of olive trees separates the vines from the extensive olive grove where plants of Leccio del Corno, Moraiolo, Frantoio, Coreggiolo and Pendolino intermingle in regular rows dotting the highest slope, alternating with arable fields and woods in a harmonious landscape that has remained unchanged since its beginnings.
A fauna consisting of squirrels, pheasants, hares, wild boar and roe deer, among others, finds its natural habitat here. Numerous water sources on a soil of alberese mixed with large draining stones ensure that the plantations are continually and regularly irrigated. The microclimate, due to the south-east exposure, allows the plants to fully enjoy the sun and the fruit to ripen earlier than on neighbouring farms.
The products therefore always reach processing first.
