Fattoria Valacchi Winery
Fattoria Valacchi is located in the area of Chianti, the heart of Tuscany’s wine region, halfway between the renowned cities of Florence and Siena, a few miles from the town where the first strict regulations were set for the production of modern Chianti wine (1874).
The estate has belonged to the Sanesi family since 1977 and, right from the start, their passion for this terroir and its history led them to the search for the truest origins of Chianti.
And so began the adventure of renewing the vineyards with the planting of long-forgotten and lesser-known grape varieties, such as Cigliegiolo, Colorino, and Malvasia Nera, without neglecting important varieties like Sangiovese and Canaiolo, as well as Trebbiano and Malvasia Bianca white grapes.
Today, Fattoria Valacchi efficiently produces modern wines from local native grape varieties relying on traditional winemaking methods undertaken with a modern perspective.
