On a gentle hill in some of the loveliest countryside of Tuscany, the ancient, aristocratic winery in the little village of Lornano has been in the same family for generations. Sangiovese is one of three houses are arranged round an old threshing floor, like the piazza of a hamlet. They all have plenty of space and height. Much of the furniture is antique, cleverly co-ordinated with good quality Tuscan furniture in excellent taste. The large pool, about 50 metres beyond the houses, has a wide, furnished surround and shares in the beautiful views of the Chianti countryside, framed with flowers, herbs and shrubs attracting a myriad of butterflies....
Sangiovese has its own, private, furnished lawned area beyond and just below the side of the piazza, with a pergola for shade. The accommodation is on the first floor, reached by an external, stone staircase. The large, very tall ceilinged sitting room has a Tuscan fireplace and comfortable sofas. There is a farmhouse kitchen with marble table and with old recipes framed round the corner seating. The double bedroom has a shower room en suite and the two spacious twin bedrooms share a large bathroom. On the ground floor are storerooms.
