The Cabbiavoli Estate and its Tuscan Products

estatehome

There is no "agriturismo" without a productive farm, and Cabbiavoli is at the heart of a productive farm which falls within the boundaries of the "Chianti" wine region.

The estate extends over 120 hectares: 6 are vineyards, located on hilly, calcareous, mixed terrain soil at an altitude of about 200m above sea level, with a south-south westerly exposure.

The greatest concentration about 90% - of grape variety is the Sangiovese, with small amounts of Canaiolo and Merlot. The vineyards were recently renewed and have a density of about 5000 plants per hectare and are mostly on a spur cordon system.

The olive groves consist of about 20 hectares of different varieties such as Frantoio, Leccino, Pendolino and Moraiolo, from which is made the extraordinary Cabbiavoli extra virgin olive oil, rich in flavour and personality.

The fertile areas amount to about 50 hectares of irrigated fields sown principally with grain and sunflowers.

The entire company falls within the Azienda Faunistica Venatoria di Oliveto (the Organization for Hunting and Wildlife of Oliveto) and comprises the typical fauna of Chianti Fiorentino, with pheasant, hare and roe deer.

The Puccioni family closely monitors all the agricultural work in order to ensure that traditional methods are respected and followed to guarantee the best quality products. The family founded in 1888 a production company for fertilizers and for over 120 years has confirmed its farming vocation.

Wine Cellar

Beneath the Castle is a little wine cellar, in a cavern dug out of the tuff rock, benefitting from a temperature that varies only two degrees between summer and winter.
