I Mori – Firenze (IT)
In the early 70’s when farmers left the countryside for the town, the Giannelli family, instead, decided to redevelop their small farm “I Mori” which has gradually developed since then.
Today the company includes various farms and has extended its territory to 120 hectares of which 50 are vineyards and 15 olive-groves. Here we produce Chianti, Chianti Colli Fiorentini, Toscano Rosso and Bianco, Vin Santo del Chianti.
This particular area, surrounding the old castle of Malmantile, has always been famous for its wonderful olive-oil. The company’s 2000 olive trees produce an extra virgin olive oil which is sold under the prestigious brand of Laudemio.
Year after year the vineyards have being renewed with an accurate selection of the new vines. In 2001 was built a cellar for wine production, ageing and packaging. This cellar can also offer wine-tastings to the visitors.
