Principe Corsini Wines are produced at Villa Le Corti in Chianti Classico. The Corsini family has been an integral part of the history of the area since 1373. That year, Andrew Corsini became Bishop of Fiesole and was eventually venerated as Saint Andrew Corsini, three hundred years after his death. The family’s influence was not exclusively devoted to the church, but rather permeated all aspects of Tuscan culture from politics to art and most importantly in the production of wine. Today the Villa and cellars are considered national monuments.
The farm extends over 230 hectares of which almost 50 are planted to vines (principally Sangiovese) and another 63 hectares reserved for olive trees. The remaining land was deliberately conserved as a forest area, with the goal of respecting the balance of the territory and the biodiversity found within it. Also for this reason, since 2013, the estate has chosen to cultivate all of their vineyards following the rules of organic farming and winemaking.
The ultimate goal of Villa Le Corti is to showcase the elegant side of Sangiovese, expressing the subtleties of the terroir while respecting the environment, seasonality, the rhythms of nature and, above all, the holistic health of the vines.
