Estate vineyards | Overlooking Florence, the Villa Mangiacane Estate spans 306 hectares situated between San Casciano Val di Pesa and Greve in Chianti, at an altitude of 250-300 metres. Of the 43 hectares of vineyards, 15 were planted in the 1980’s (3,500 vines per ha), and 28 were replanted after 2001 (5,500 vines per ha). The diversity of soils and exposures, to the East and North East in San Casciano, and to the South in Greve, generate different microclimates.

Winery | Whilst Mangiacane has been around for 500 years, estate bottling began from 200.
