Az. Agr. Villa Sant'Anna
The wine-farm The Villa S.Anna estate represents what was once part of a larger property owned for about 200 years by the family of Simona Ruggeri Fabrioni. It is situated in the fertile Val di Chiana on the edge of the outlying hills surrounding the town of Montepulciano, whose vineyards are famed for their quality.
Wine has therefore always been one of the estate's most prized products, and up until a few years ago it was sold only in bulk to leading Tuscan wine firms, by whom it was much esteemed and sought after.
On the strength of this encouraging past history, with the advice of experts and the definitive commitment of her daughters Anna and Margherita to carrying on the business, the present owner has decided to bring out the potential of this product and market it directly, running the activity as a matriarchal concern (the name S.Anna come from her mother's name).
Products Owing to the limited area of the vineyards the business is geared to the production of high quality wines. "Vallone", deriving from a small (one hectare) vineyard with this name, is the result of a careful selection of the grapes, a long period of maceration and ageing for over a year at a costant temperature in the estate's old and extensive underground cellars.
The "Chianti Colli Senesi" DOCG derives from selected grapes from other vineyards, and is matured in French oak barrels and then aged in bottle like the "Vallone".
In 1993 production of "Vino Nobile di Montepulciano" was begun, respecting the best tradition of the zone and the high quality demanded of such a celebrated wine.
Finally, since 1999 the very finest Rosso di Montepulciano has been produced, in order to satisfy completely the most discerning palate.
