Le Filigare, where Pope Pio IX relaxed with the Archduke of Tuscany

Chianti Classico and Super Tuscan are the main wines produced by Le Filigare, a farm in the Chianti heart, San Donato in Poggio, 34 km from Florence, that makes extra virgin olive oil, grappa and brandy too. Filigare is the name of the hill where the winery is. In the past the medieval hamlet was named Fiaccole di Sopra and was illuminated by torches for the patron saint festival. Filigare has been the first “holiday home” in Chianti, in the 1990’s. In 1875 the house hosted Pope Pio IX invited by the past owner, the Archduke of Tuscany, to relax and taste local good food and wines.

Today the farm has 11 hectares of vineyards, mostly Sangiovese with a small quantity of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.
