Wine and Olive Oil
Azienda Agricola Villa a Sesta, the agricultural estate owned by Relais Casanova, is located in the enchanting scenario of the Siena hills in the heart of the Chianti Classico production area, just 1 km from the guest facilities.
Villa a Sesta is a corner of paradise in the countryside between Siena, Florence, and Arezzo, where art, history, and nature go harmoniously hand in hand. The territory, with its many medieval villages, isolated parish churches, and castles, is living testimony to ancient civilization.
The estate stretches over more than 1100 hectares, 47 of which are cultivated in specialized vineyards. The most common vine is Sangiovese, the foundation of Chianti Classico wine. The properties of the soil, the slope of the terrain, the altitude, the exposition to the sun, the winds, the unique microclimate, and our selection of vines are all fundamental elements contributing to the high quality of the Villa a Sesta wines. The new 5000 m3 wine cellar is a masterful fusion of innovation and tradition.
And another thing... the oil mill.
About 60 hectares of estate land are cultivated in olives, prevalently the Correggiolo, Frantoio, and Leccino varieties typical of the area, for an annual yield of about 6000 kg of extra-virgin olive oil. With our oil, we aim to contribute to valorizing the quality and protecting the health benefits and genuinity of extra-virgin oil, features that make Tuscan olive oil the world’s best. Our oil is an intense green in color, with a strong grassy nose and notes of artichoke, green tomato, and almond, pleasingly rounded to the palate with finely-balanced bitter and spicy nuances.
