Corzano e Paterno

susan corzano paterno

The picturesque property is located in the South of Florence and is interspersed with the rolling hills of Tuscany. Tuscany is considered the stronghold of Italian red wine production. In terms of olive oil, the area is the northernmost limit of what is appreciably possible. There is no shortage of sunshine hours, but the cool winters ensure comparatively small harvests of olives. For the wines, these fluctuations are worth their weight in gold and bring freshness and elegance. Corzano e Paterno lives the romantic idea of a Tuscan estate with wine, cheese and olive oil production.

The Mediterranean influence can be felt directly in the region. The warm climate, the poor soils and cool winds result in a great composition. The white wine Il Corzanello Bianco and Rosé Il Corzanello Rosato are exemplary for the carefree, Mediterranean pleasure.

The Chianti Terre di Corzano is the epitome of a juicy, racy Sangiovese with a wonderful drinking flow. The flagship I Tre Borri is made to 100% from Sangiovese. A dark, spicy wine for eternity or those special moments with friends over good food.

Natural rhythm by conviction

Only about twenty of the 140 hectares are planted with vines. Corzano e Paterno has always been a mixed farm and sees the advantages of mixed cultivation above all in the biodiversity. Elsewhere, unfortunately, winegrowing is often dominated by dreary monoculture. The Sheep are not only used for the production of milk and cheese, but also for the enliven the vineyards and olive groves. The natural cycle is ensured by their food and digestion in this intact ecosystem.

In the past, the estate was even better known for its olive oils than for its wines. A witness of this time is the old stone mill. The Olive oils are of great quality, both as a single variety and in blends, and are an absolute recommendation.
