Owner description: Principe Corsini Estate stretches out over a hillside covered with vineyards, olive trees and woodland. It is set in the very heart of Chianti on the main road from Florence to Siena, only 16 km south of Florence. The Renaissance Villa, one of the finest in Tuscany, stands on the highest hill in the very centre of the estate. The Italian garden overlooking the valley and the vast fourteenth century wine cellars and oil jar-storage, built into the embankment in the garden, complete the picturesque scenario.GUIDED TOURS AND WINE TASTINGThroughout the year, we offer guided tours of the cellars, the oil mill and the "orciaia" with explanatory tours of the winemaking techniques and olive pressing. The tours conclude with a tasting of the products of Principe Corsini.

Great wine tour and tasting. Knowledgeable and really fun.

We walked in without calling, and luckily someone was around that showed us around the winery and gave us the history of the family and different wines. From touring here in Canada - this one is amazing!

I went here with my mother and sister for dinner one evening on our weeklong Tuscan vacation. The setting is wonderful (on a hill surrounded by extremely tall trees), the food was delicious and the tables were set with white table clothes. The dinner took place under a canopy of stamped, flowing linens. I would say this is a great place for a romantic dinner but there were also families with kids, tables of men and my table of 3 women. The wine was super as well.

The Villa we were staying at suggested we stop here for a tour and tasting. A beautiful location, some nice wines, educational tour, and estate produced olive oil! A bit expensive at 12 Euro each for a tasting and tour.

We came back the following evening for a lovely relaxing dinner. The meal was served on the patio outside the tasting room and seemed to be as many local diners as visitors. All the Corsini wines were on the wine list so you had other varietals to choose from if you were looking for something other than chianti with dinner.

That says it all really. In fact, not only Italians, but Tuscan residents of years and years come here to eat. And let's face in Tuscany there is a choice. The food is a wonderful mix of the traditional, such as wild boar, steak and forest pasta dishes, with a twist of innovation. The dining room is modest, never crowded and the service friendly. This is NOT fast food and everything is made to order on the spot, but when I Corti's wonderful red wine is your 'waiting entertainment' life could be worse. Delicious!

15 April 2012...we visited in the rain but enjoyed a warm reception from Alessandra, a great tour with Rosa learning about wine- and olive oil-making, and a delightful "light" lunch (actually quite substantial) with 3 wine tastings (also substantial). First course was a light-as-a-feather rosemary & fennel flan (excellent). Second course was tortellini with ricotta & stinging nettle/herb (ortica) filling and a brown butter sauce (superlative). Third course was ziti with tomato sauce featuring garlic and parsley (good). Dessert was a vanilla bavarese (like jello made with cream but much finer than jello) with a rich chocolate syrup. Having been advised to save a little of each wine for the end of the meal, we found this paired well with the chiantis. We were so enchanted by the whole experience, we sent a case of the wine to my parents, to try to share the experience.
