Villa Travignoli is situated in the north-east of the Chianti production area in the idyllic region of Tuscany, 25 kilometres east of Florence at the meeting of the Arno and Sieve rivers. Chianti is one of Italy's most famous wines and is classified into different denominations depending on the area in which it is produced. Travignoli is situated in the Chianti Rufina region, where it enjoys a southern exposure, calcareous soils and an altitude ranging from 250 to 400 metres above sea level. This means that the sun shines on the vineyards for the entire day, facilitating the ripening of the crops and protecting them from stagnation and damp. Furthermore, its proximity to the Apennine mountains assures optimal refrigeration and ventilation during hot summer nights. We cultivate 70 hectares of specialised vineyards on our 90-hectare estate, primarily focusing on Sangiovese but also including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonay.
Tradition & innovation from the heart of tuscany
Discover more about our winery
For the Busi family, tradition and innovation are the key ingredients to crafting superb wine. The process of fermentation and vinification of the grapes takes place in steel tanks that preserve the freshness of both #ffffff (Chardonney) and red wines (Sangiovese). Our 16th century cellar, with its vaulted ceiling, not only preserves the wine in ideal conditions but also maintains a link with age-old tradition. Wooden barrels are used for aging our reserve wines while barriques are used for maturing and finishing our Calice del Conte I.G.T., crafted from Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes used for Vin Santo (Trebbiano and Malvasia) are left to dry naturally before being processed using traditional methods, and are then aged for five years in small kegs. Travignoli's cellars yield 400,000 bottles per year, the majority of which are Chianti Rufina: a soft, fragrant red that is put on the market a year after harvest. Our wine is widely exported throughout the world to the United States, Canada, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Norway, South Africa, Australia, Japan, China and Russia.
