The estate of Fattoria di Bagnolo dates back to 1419 and in fact, for some time was owned by Machiavelli, which we think is bloomin' cool. He famously said of his vineyard; "grapes should either be caressed or crushed. If you do them minor damage they will get their revenge; but if you squash the grapes, there is nothing they can do. If you need to injure a grape, do it in such a way that you do not have to fear their vengeance." He didn't seem like a great winemaker, he seemed far too concerned the grapes were plotting to over throw him... Thankfully, today the estate is run by Marchesi Barolini Baldelli, who is passionately devoted to viticulture and is in no way encourages despot winemaking.



Originally in 1419, the Fattoria di Bagnolo was called 'Al Fonte' and it belonged to Machiavelli from 1458 to 1585. Only in 1800 did Bartolommeo Bartolini Baldelli who fell in love with the beauty of the landscape decide to buy it for him and his family. It is now run by Marco Bartolini Baldelli who is completely devoted and has achieved excellent results over the years. Of the three farms belonging to the family, Fattoria di Bagnolo is definitely the one most suited for the production of high quality wines with its favourable microclimate. The special geological structure of the land enhances the characteristics of the native vines and olive trees. The Fattoria di Bagnolo is a wonderful, historical agricultual estate and is situated in Florence and has a beautiful view over the Chianti countryside.
