La Croce farming estate


“La Croce” farming estate lies between Castellina in Chianti and Poggibonsi (Siena), close to the Nature Reserve of St. Agnese, unique Italian example of a natural cypress wood which renews itself spontaneously, dating back to about 10 centuries ago and is considered a real and true historic monument of significant scenic beauty.

The origins of the farm, still family run, date back to the sixties when the Zari brothers, farmers for generations, bought it and dedicated themselves to it since then. The farm extends over 160 hectares divided in vineyards, olive groves, fields and woodland. The grape harvest is done strictly by hand and the grapes are immediately taken to the cellars. The wines produced here are the Supertuscan “Il Doccione” Red Tuscan Igt, a DOCG Chianti Classico Reserve “Fondamento”, a DOCG Chianti Classico, a DOCG Chianti and, vintages such as “Poggi della Cipresseta” Red Tuscan IGT and “Il Ribellino” White Tuscan IGT. Other products: Vinsanto del Chianti Doc, Grappa di Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Dop oil, Extra-virgin olive oil.
