Project Description

In 1512 Niccolo Machiavelli was confined to his home which adjoins the cellar, here he pursued writing and tending to his vineyards. Located at Sant’Andrea in Percussina near Florence, the historic Villa Machiavelli offers five centuries of Chianti history.

Careful restoration has brought the 500 year old property where Machiavelli lived during his long exile from Florence to its original structure. The cellars beneath the property have not changed from the description given in a document dated 1948. The plots and vineyards of the ancient Fontalle estate extend out from the tiny village across 27 hectares and produce the celebrated Chianti Classico DOCG and Riserva.
