The hamlet lays a few kilometers south of Castellina in Chianti, along the "Chiantigiana", the roman road that leads from Florence to Siena
The Mazzei family, owners of Fonterutoli since 1435, has been passionately involved in the making of wine from their vineyards for over five hundred years. The family villa, on the main square next to the church, is the heart of the little hamlet. Grouped around it are the village cottages, amongst which are five magnificently restored apartments.
Each apartment is completely independent, with separate entrances from the street. The decor is the work of the Marchesa who has furnished each one with a delightful country-house elegance using many family paintings and antiques. An additional apartment has been made out of an old farmhouse outside the village, in a particularly magical location.
A small trattoria which intrue tuscan fashion doubles as local grocer and public telephone, serves local country fare
So called thanks to the big wisteria covering the loggia and the front door of this apartment (Glicine in Italian), Glicine Grande respects the typical structure of the Tuscan house, the main room being the spacious old fashioned kitchen with a large fireplace. The decoration of the apartment compliments the rustic elegance of the building, the ceilings supported by enormous beams and the floors covered in old terracotta tiles.
