Cennatoio – Winery with Breathtaking Chianti Landscape
The Cennatoio winery is owned by Leandro and Gabrielle Alessi who have been running the farm since 1970. Everyone who visits the farm describes it as absolutely beautiful to see thanks to the breath taking Chianti landscape, rolling hills covered in endless vineyards and olive groves, traditional church buildings, castles and sprawling oak woods. The stony soil of the area as well as the hot sun felt during the daylight hours make the area perfect for the growing of Sangiovese Grosso, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines which strong flavours and lingering aromas of berries.
The award winning and prized vineyards at Cennatoio are interspersed with olive trees and cover a total of 10 hectares of land on the border between Florence and Siena.
