In Tuscany, history harmoniously blends with every single inch of the land, and our 17th century Tenuta Ceccatelli is a perfect example of a place where each layer uncovers a new story, interweaving the generations of the past with that of today. Tenuta Ceccatelli is set upon the oak forested Cambolli hill in the heart of Chianti Classico, just a stone’s throw from a winding medieval road that from Florence leads to Siena along the famous Chianti wine route. The history of the podere and its name Cambolli is derived and closely linked to a notable reservoir adjacent to the property. The reservoir has been well known throughout local
history for the quality of its natural spring waters since the Etruscan period. A recent study has led us to discover a Roman settlement during the period of Constantine the Great dating back to 335 A.D. The pureness of the natural spring waters were coveted by scientists and studied centuries later for the construction plans to canalize the waters via aqueduct to the city of Siena between the 18th and the 20th century. Later settled by oil and wine makers, the natural beauty of the property invites guests to unwind in the peaceful shadows of lush, ancient oak trees and the serenity of rolling Tuscan hills.
