Il Palagio – Panzano, Tuscany
Owned by husband and wife Monia Piccini and Franco Guarducci, whose families have been associated with the property for over 100 years. The villa on this property (in which you can rent an apartment) has some walls that date back to 800AD. The Il Palagio vineyards are in the “Golden Valley” of Chianti Classico region, facing south and getting the warm Tuscan sunshine all year round.
They produce a great Chianti Classico which will be certified organic from 2013...70% of the vineyards in this area are organic. They also have upstream and downstream wines, all sangiovese based. The 2013 Ignobile made from newer sangiovese vineyards is an amazing wine for the price...and it is certified organic!
