The estate’s idyllic sculpture garden is singular and offers visitors cozy seating between the Shona figures.
Winery: Award-winning wines from traditional production
At the Villa Mangiacane winery, wines have been produced for several centuries. Their grapes are harvested by hand on the estate and pressed to fine Chianti Classico. Three of the wines have already been awarded for their outstanding quality. The homemade olive oil, characterized by a light touch of pepper, is also a delicacy. Wine and oil tastings are offered regularly on the estate. Also, the exquisite wines of the winery can be enjoyed in the Villa’s own restaurant.
