Crossing the Chianti
hills, from Florence to Siena, the landscape becomes softer:
the crests' surface blurs in the nearby of the Crete Senesi and the
fields, the olive trees and the grapevines prevail in a more domestic
countryside near the huge woods of the Chianti.
Here you can find the Calcinaia hill.
The ancient building is
large and complex, modified and extended along the centuries,
following the needs of the country people that lived here.
The walls speak languages from different ages, but in the same time, the whole construction seems the work of a single artist, the incarnation of the tuscan heritage.
