Cultivation of olive trees in the Chianti Classico DOP area has a millenary tradition, documented since the mid-seventh century. The Renaissance represented a monumental expansion of olive production, linked to the increase in plantations throughout Tuscany, especially in the areas between Florence and Siena. An edict issued in 1716 by the Grand Duke of Tuscany marked the official recognition of the quality of the olive production of the current Chianti Classico area. The olive groves of Villa Mangiacane spans for 24 hectares between the hills of San Casciano in Val di Pesa and those of Greve in Chianti. The entire surface is certified Chianti Classico DOP and we are very proud of this.
