azienda vinicola Ormanni vino del Chianti
Ormanni
Our most precious treasures:
the vineyards, the cellars and our wine

It is obvious that tasting wine in optimal circumstances can only improve
both the performances of ourwines and
the taste-tester’s…

each wine is the unique result
of a territory,
a vintage,
a vineyard

our wines come to life from the obsessive attention
we put on our vineyards, from a fertile land
and from the passion we put in our work

when cellars are real historic monuments

Ormanni

Situated on the route between Poggibonsi and Castellina in Chianti, close to the church of San Pietro a Cedda, the estate was owned in 1200 by the Florentine family Ormanni also quoted by Dante Alighieri in his Divine Comedy:

“so that it should not seem remarkable when I speak of the noble Florentines, whose fame is buried by time. I have seen the Ughi, seen the Catellini, the Filippi, Grechi, Ormanni and Alberichi, illustrious families already on the wane”.
Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) – Divine Comedy, Paradise Canto XVI

The estate was elected as countryside dwelling and passed from the Ormanni to the Scarlatti family in the XVI century and afterwards to the Medici in the XVIII century. In 1818 Carlotta Lenzoni de’ Medici, already famous for having purchased Boccaccio’s house in Certaldo and having it restored as a Museum, resold the Ormanni estate to Vincenzo Brini di Angelo from Carmignano, next to Prato.
The bill of sale dates January 30 th , 1819.
