About Fattoria Montecchio
The history of the Fattoria Montecchio is intertwined with that of the Nuti family starting from the distant 1973, when Ivo Nuti, originally from Cerreto Guidi, a stone’s throw from the birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci, became one of the most important tanning entrepreneurs of Santa Croce sull’Arno, decides to buy the estate that belonged, in the eighteenth century, to the Marquises Torrigiani, and bring it back to its former glory .
After all, wine has always been a great passion for Ivo , cultivated alongside his job as an entrepreneur, and only here, in the heart of the Chianti Classico and his native Tuscany, to which he was viscerally linked, could such a story be born. .
With the help of his wife Maria – who today continues to write important chapters in the great book of Fattoria Montecchio, together with their three children , Andrea, Fabrizio and Riccardo – Ivo first of all takes care of recovering the manor house, then of giving it new life to what is the beating heart of the estate, the vineyards, leaving nothing to chance.
Chianti Classico, our territory, our history
There are places literally kissed by luck or, as in the case of Fattoria Montecchio, by Bacchus.
After all, the Belpaese is historically a land of wine; here stood the ancient region of Enotria, in the South, but in more recent times that of Chianti Classico is undoubtedly the territory with the most fascinating and deep-rooted history.
Here, between Siena and Florence, wine has been produced for centuries with considerable success, so much so that for the great Florentine noble families it has always been an important business, thanks, then as now, to well-established commercial relationships with neighboring countries, where Chianti wine was all the rage.
