Area & Experiences
Set in the heart of Tuscany, Chianti captures the essence of the Italian landscape with vineyard-covered hills and valleys that stretch from Florence to Siena. By day, the sun nurtures the succulent grapes and golden wheat of the terrain. By night, hunters take to the forest in search of sweet chestnuts and the illustrious black truffle. Gathering around the table in a quaint Medieval Italian village, savor the delicacies that the region has to offer with a glass of Chianti. Nearby is the Mercatale in Val di Pesa, which is situated about ten miles from the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, home of the Machiavelli family. Villa Donato is only a stone’s throw away from the Ispoli Farms where we can still feel the importance of their family heritage.
