Podere La Villa is situated in a Tuscan valley where the sometimes lush, sometimes rugged landscape alternately recalls renaissance paintings by masters such as Leonardo da Vinci or Benozzo Gozzoli. The estate has a total of 10 hectares, which include vineyards, olive groves, woods and a small lake. The 7 hectares of vineyards are in the Chianti Classico wine region where Sangiovese (80%) and Merlot (20%) are cultivated.

The story of the winery goes back to 2003 when Giacomo Tachis (the creator od Supertuscan wines Ornellaia, Sassicaia and Tignanello), decided to replant the old 1 1/4 hectare vineyard in front of Podere La Villa with Sangiovese and Merlot grapes. In 2006 the vines began to bear fruit and indicated that the grapes would produce excellent results if they were treated with passion and dedication.

The winery is currently run by Giacomo’s daughter, Ilaria, who makes 2 wines: Chianti Classico il Pargolo (named after her son who was born the year of the first harvest), and Giacomo (Merlot 100%, named in honour of Ilaria’s father, Giacomo Tachis).
