     Attractions 


To the south of Florence winding its way to Siena, the famous road,
via
Chiantigiana, crosses the hills and valleys that produce one of the
greatest wines in Italy, Chianti Classico. For wine lovers who know
this road, it
is no mystery that just before the town of Greve-in-Chianti is a
long cypress-lined drive that leads up to the villa of Calcinaia.
Home to the Counts Capponi since its purchase on May 23rd 1524,
Calcinaia remains at
the family's heart with members of each generation giving new life
to the fields, woods, vineyards and cellars just as each spring
brings new abundance to the soil. The wine is a perfect example of
the family's love for its land. With each vintage, the Capponis
share the hopes, worries,pride and care that are part of winemaking.
Chianti Classico from Villa Calcinaia is the truest expression of a
family's pride and sense of
history. Villa Calcinaia sits on the sunny hills bordering the Greve
river, twenty kilometers south of Florence. Composed of
approximately 300 acres in woods and pastureland, the estate
includes the family's private villa, numerousfarmhouses and select
acreage of vineyards and olive groves. With its grapes, the Capponis
produce their acclaimed Chianti Classico, D.O.C.G.,
as well as a reserve vintage and an I.G.T. wine of Merlot, called
Casarsa.These three wines are offered to visitors who stop by for
tastings and are available for sale at a "direct-from-the-cellar"
price. Additionally, the family offers its highly praised vin santo,
a Tuscan dessert wine, a
grappa distilled from its Chianti grapes, a white table wine, a
young red wine,
as well as its flavorful olive oil and red-wine vinegar. Guests to
Villa Calcinaia may enjoy the hospitality of various agritourism
residences, apartments in the newly restructured, historic
farmhouses that mark the landscape. These apartments, featured on
Italy's RAI3 travel program Bell'Italia, have been praised for their
renovation that has
brought together the most modern conveniences with an historical
appreciation for the countryside, its customs and architecture. For
those guests visiting
for the day, Calcinaia offers wine tastings, meals and tours,
providing an overview of the estate, its agricultural products and
the many dimensions of this notable family's history
