Description

The TATTONI VILLA A SESTA Spa agricultural estate is situated in the enchanting landscape of the Siena hills, in the village of Villa a Sesta, of ancient Etruscan origins. Set in the heart of the Chianti Superiore close to the source of the Sienese Ombrone, this ancient and picturesque hamlet lies on the Chianti provincial road between San Gusmè and the Castello di Brolio, in the municipality of Castelnuovo Berardenga (Siena), formerly called Castello Nuovo dei Berardenghi, the outpost of the Sienese Republic during the centuries-long battles against the Florentines. Villa a Sesta is a little corner of paradise set in the lush countryside between Siena, Florence and Arezzo, where art, history and nature coexist in sublime harmony. This is a territory studded with mediaeval hamlets, churches and castles bearing witness to an ancient civilisation. Authenticity is the keyword here, starting from the hamlet itself and its inhabitants. The manor house, a church, a traditional olive mill, the houses of the hamlet and numerous farmhouses scattered over the neighbouring hills cloaked in vineyards and olive groves, shimmering in the different periods of the year. The agricultural estate, named after the village, lies in the heart of the Chianti Classico Gallo Nero region, one of the most famous in Tuscany. It boasts a significant agricultural production, especially in terms of the wine and olive oil linked to the local tradition.
