Villa La Pagliaia
Villa La Pagliaia is an ancient mansion located a few kilometers from Siena, nestled in the greenery of the Chianti Classico hills. The villa was a place dear to the Grand Duke of Tuscany Ferdinando III: it was built by Giulio Bianchi Bandinelli, and in 1981 it was acquired by Allianz. The production of Chianti Classico by Villa La Pagliaia is characterized by respect for the territory and the pace of nature.
Chianti Classico is not only a wine, but also a territory between Florence and Siena. Due to its climate and soil, this region is home to vineyards that produce 35/38 million bottles every year. A wine can only be labelled as Chianti Classico if it contains at least 80% Sangiovese grapes. Only in this case can it be labelled with the “Gallo Nero” seal – the Black Rooster -, a symbol of belonging to the Consortium that expresses the will to respect the territory, the vine and the production regulations.
