Tenuta il Palazzo is located on the hills north-east of Arezzo. It is a thriving farm and agritourism. Today Il Palazzo looks like it did back in the late Middle Ages, with precious architecture and legendary traces of that period of time. Its origins are said to date back to the Etruscans, an ancient and proud people who inhabited these lands in the 7th century B.C.. However, the name “Il Palazzo” comes from the Romans, who conquered it. In the past, the farmhouse served as a “statio”, or military station along the Via del Sale (also known as Via Arminensis or Via Livia), which connected Rimini to Rome. The medieval village dominates the entire estate still today, where vines, olives and grains are cultivated.
Cultivation of the vineyards dates back to the early 1970s. High-quality grapes with the appellation DOCG Chianti and IGT are produced with modern cultivation techniques.
