This winery was recommended by our driver while in Greve. Meeting Maurizio, his wife, and his dog as well as tasting the wines were a highlight of our trip! We had a group of 6 and this was the 4th wine tour and tasting we did during our week in the area, and by far our favorite. The wine and food were great and the hospitality was the best! Grazie Maurizio!

Sooo good. Maurizio does a brilliant tour, is very funny and a joy to be in the company of. He and his wife prepared a lovely lunch for us to enjoy alongside 5 of their wines. The setting is phenomenal. The wine is very tasty. Highly recommend.

The sunny Tuscan countrywide, picturesque villages, fields of grape vines, peaceful olive groves, and the warmth of Italian hospitality. This is what my son and I were fortunate enough to experience on our day trip to visit Maurizio at his farm in Montefioralle. And I have yet to mention the real purpose of our trip, to taste the region's famous wine, Chianti Classico.

It was an easy trip. We caught a bus from the Donatello station next to SMN train station, and in under an hour we were in Greve-in-Chianti. If I recall correctly, bus tickets were only 3 euros each way, and buses ran about every 30 min to 1 hour. Greve has a charming piazza in the center of town, where Maurizio met us. He was just as warm in person, as he was in his emails, and gave both my son and I bear hugs as he asked about our trip. Despite the language barrier, we had no difficulty in communicating. As we traveled out of town, and up the hill to Montefioralle Maurizio pointed out all of the historic sights, and would stop for us to take pictures of the panoramic vistas below. He seemed to know everyone that we passed. For you history buffs, Montefioralle (population 79) is the birthplace of Amerigo Vespucci, and Maurizio showed us his home.

We first got a tour of the farm, and were educated about the grape vines. We saw some vines which were over 15 years old, and others which had recently been planted. Here are some of the key takeaways:

* the grape vines must be at least 5 years old before grapes can be harvested and used to produce 'Chianti Classico.'
* the roots of all grape vines in the area are from the US, and then Italian grape varieties are grafted onto these roots. This is due to a virus in the soil which came from America, and destroys the roots of all but American grape plants. Who would have known that Italian wine had American roots!
* to be classified as Chianti Classico, the grape vines can only receive water through rainfall. Irrigation is not allowed. That is a fact that I bet you didn't know!
* all of Maurizio's wines are organic

Then we moved onto the olive trees. Some of the trees on his farm are over 150 years old. Harvesting is done by hand in October, and each day is transported to a local facility to be pressed into olive oil. Here are the takeaways from our education on olive oil (you will notice that there are fewer of them, as by now we were eager to move on to the wine tasting!):

* olive oil is made up of 2 types of olives. Morayolo, which are black in color, make up 60%, and frantoyo, which are brown or green, make up the remaining 40%.
* hand picking, while more labor intensive is the best way to harvest olives. The other 2 methods, combing the trees, or shaking them down both do damage to the tree and to the olives.
* the shorter the time between harvesting and pressing, the better the resulting olive oil. Maurizio ensures that this time is kept to a minimum.

And now onto the wine tasting, where Maurizio educated us on how the different varieties of wine are produced (with great care, and love - in fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Maurizio gives each of his barrels of wine a hug each morning!)

Here are the takeaways (keep in mind, that these were written in between generous pours of 4 different varieties of wine, while enjoying delicious varieties of cheese, bread soaked in olive oil, truffle oil, and an unbelievable balsamic vinegar that is handmade with the skins of the grapes. A most gracious host, who kept refilling our plates and our glasses!

How Chianti Classico is made:

* 1st fermentation (12 to 15 days), the temperature must be maintained at lower than 32 C. Maurizio called this a 'frenetic' process, where the sugar is converted into alcohol. This fermentation begins 1 hour after picking! (In between the 1st and 2nd fermentations, the skins are removed). The wines color, acidity, taste, smell is all determined in the first 15 days after picking.

* 2nd fermentation (lasts 2 to 3 months). It is also called the 'Malolatica' fermentation, where the strong "malico" acid is transformed into a soft "latic" acid.

* now the wine spends 6 months in steel tanks, after which it meets the requirements of the regions most popular variety, "Chianti Classico."

Maurizio also produces 3 more exclusive varieties:

Chianti Classico Reserva - which spends an additional year in 500 liter wooden barrels called "tonnause."

Super Tuscan, and Gran Selection - which spend an additional year in smaller 225 liter wooden barrels called "barquex."

I am sure we stayed way past our allotted time with Maurizio, but none of us seemed to be concerned about time. After this memorable experience, Maurizio drove us back to Montefioralle, where we did some more sightseeing before making our way back to Greve to get our bus back to Florence.

Grazie mille Maurizio for your the memorable day, and grande abbraci!

We went as a group of 2. The experience according to the wine awas pretty good, we tested 5 types of wines which were good. The host (Maurizio) was really simpatic and kind, he explained very well the process of wine and olive oil making. However, the price was not realistic and not corresponding to the quantity of wine and apperitive.

Maurizio was a fabulous host. The first stop on our wine tasting day in Chianti and the standard was set so high!
Located at his house, with a side shed for the tasting and wine making, this was an unforgettable experience.
We had an amazing tray of cheese and meats to accompany the wine.
The BEST part...the Olive Oil!! BEST OLIVE OIL LOTION EVER!!!! MUST GET THE LOTION!
This is a must go. The view is spectacular and the company is even better. There were even people there with families and the children were having a blast!!

Maurizio and his wife, Christina, were wonderful host for our wine tasting! She even cooked for us: a drunken pasta, cooked in Chianti, home made Greek yogurt with chocolate sauce. To accompany the exceptional wines, we were served plates of cheeses and Italian meats, and bread with their own olive oil and vinegar.
They also make some really great face,hand and body creams and lotions.
Did I mention the view: magnificent!
Thank you Maurizio and Christina for am amazing lunch!

We had originally planned on visiting Orvieto on our way from Rome to Florence but decided the day before to shorten our travel time and take the high speed train so we could do a half day winery tour outside Florence. It turned out to be a highlight of our trip. Maurizio and his wife treated us like family. Their vineyard has absolutely stunning views of Chianti and his grounds are well designed and maintained, especially the tasting area. The best part is... I didn’t even realize how much I liked Chianti wines until I had his. Phenomenal wine maker!! We also ordered his olive oil and chocolates— both excellent like the wine. This guy definitely knows what he’s doing. A must visit in the region.

We travelled from Florence for a break from the hustle and bustle and Maurizio did not disappoint in providing us with a fabulous wine tasting and tour experience. We opted for the wine tasting with lunch, which was bellissimo! Please make this your first choice for wine tasting in Chianti.

We come to Tuscany every October to do some wine tours and chill out. We tried to visit this winery last year but he was all booked so we missed out but we're glad we came back this year. Maurizio is one of the sweetest winery owners that we've ever met. He's passionate and knowledgeable about everything on his land and you can taste it in his wines and olive oils. We did a private tour with him for almost two hours and at the end we felt like family. The wines are amazing and we bought about 6 bottles plus a few bottles of the olive oil so you won't be disappointed there. We will go back just to say hi and grab more wine when we pass through again.

We live in Italy so we spoke in Italian but I heard him speak to some guests that were leaving when we arrived so I know he speaks English.

Veniamo in Toscana ogni ottobre per fare alcuni giri di vino e chill out. Maurizio è uno dei proprietari di vini più dolci che abbiamo mai incontrato. È appassionato e ben informato su tutto ciò che è sulla sua terra e puoi assaggiarlo nei suoi vini e oli d'oliva. Abbiamo fatto un tour con lui per quasi due ore e alla fine ci siamo sentiti come in famiglia. I vini sono incredibili. Torneremo di sicuro.
