Tenuta di Ricavo


beyond the estate

Gentle rolling hills, vineyards and olive groves, the sky that has inspired famous painters: this is the landscape that surrounds the Tenuta. A landscape that still bears the marks of history, castles, churches and fortified hamlets. We are in the heart of Chianti Classico, forged by human hand and the toiling of generations of farmers, now famous in the world for the quality of the local cuisine and fantastic wines.

Those wishing to discover the most beautiful places in Tuscany will be spoiled for choice: Florence - the cradle of the Renaissance, famous for its art as much as its markets and shopping streets - and Siena - the medieval city famous for its Palio and its historic districts known as "contrade" - are both unmissable destinations.

San Gimignano, Montalcino, Crete Senesi and the Etruscan town of Volterra are all worth a visit, along with day-trips to the Maremma area, to Assisi and Perugia, Pisa and Lucca, all within easy reach.
