The history of Villa Cerna took root long ago in the Middle Ages. It is first mentioned in a document dated 4th February 1001!
Its more recent history saw its purchase by Luigi Cecchi, from one the principle dynasties in Italian wine, in the 1960s.
Still today Villa Cerna belongs to this prestigious family who have made it a small model winery, managed with thoughtfulness and professionalism.
The severe but extremely beautiful vineyards lie in the district of Castellina in Chianti, in the southern part of Tuscany, in the Chianti Classico appellation. They are situated at about 250 metres above sea level, on terrain well suited to the cultivation of the main grape variety of the area: Sangiovese.
The Chianti Classicos from Villa Cerna bring together the experience of a great Italian wine family, traditional production techniques and a land that has always been devoted to vine growing. The wines, refined in both the great classic Tuscan barrels and in smaller oak containers, exude the authentic appeal of the Chiantigiana.
