Le Filigare


Le Filigare - Romance, Elegance, Relax



Le Filigare is the name of the hill where the agriturismo in Chianti, between Siena and Florence, is located. The main hamlet dates back to XVII century and was known in the area as Fiaccole di Sopra. The name derives from a slang term which means “upper torch”. Long time ago during the commemoration of the Patron Saint, the hamlet, located on a dominant position, used to be lit with fire torches and locals used to gather here to celebrate.



Our home has a rich past. In 1716 the Grand Ducky of Tuscany, for the first time in history, set the boundaries to a production zone for the “real” Chianti wine. Le Filigare settlements where included within these boundaries.



Our home became also the first established holiday home in Chianti in the early nineties. Before then, it boats exclusive names on its guest-list in 1857: Pope Pio IX spent his holiday at Le Filigare invited by the owner ArchDuke of tuscany to savour the delicious wines and food and unwind in this splendid setting.



Nature have gifted the area with the right ingredients: a soil mainly sandstones, combined with the location, between 400 and 500 meters above sea level, where there is not fog or frost, have set the basis for an excellent wine production. The gentle slopes exposed to the South, assure good drainage. A dense wooded area provides sheltering to the northern vines, while constant sunshine and lack of humidity guarantee the perfect ripening of the grapes.



Here, the land is mainly clayey with skeleton, which makes it permeated. This is one of the main requirements for the production of Chianti Classico DOCG in which the Sangiovese grape has an ample predominance of about 90%.



In a smaller percentage there is also Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Syrah grapes. Our Vineyards at Le Filigare cover about 11 hectares and produce an average of 40/50.000 bottles a year.



Our philosophy is to produce a limited amount of a particularly fine quality. We are proud of our selected production, which has successfully won through the years many awards within the wine industry. Of considerable importance is also our Virgin Olive Oil production and Spirits such as Grappa, Vinsanto & Brandy.
