San Michele a Torri 


Organic - Super Tuscan, Chianti Classico, Chianti Colli Fiorentini

Fattoria San Michele a Torri is located in the heart of Chianti, around 15 km from Florence. It takes its name from

the village in which it stands, on a beautiful hill at the gates of Florence, from which you can admire the wonderful Tuscan landscape full of vineyards, olive groves and woods. It covers 2.230 acres of lands, 210 acres of vineyard, 275 acres of olive three groves, 100 acres of cereals and legumes cultivations, an area dedicated to our Cinta Senese breed pork (they live free range within the property) and woodland.

Paolo Nocentini, the current owner of the company, has given new impetus and development to the traditional agricultural activity, expanding and renewing the cultivations and directing it to the biological production of typical Tuscan products.

The estate is located between two important regions of wine production: Chianti Colli Fiorentini and Chianti Classico. The wine production is excellent here, and we obtain very perfumed, velvety and strong character wines.


The most important grape variety we cultivate is Sangiovese, but we also have small vineyard of complementary grapes like Canaiolo, Colorino, Ciliegiolo, Montepulciano, Malvasia Rossa and also white grapes like Trebbiano, San Colombano and Malvasia Bianca. In the past years we introduced more international grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Petit Manseng and Pinot Bianco. These grape varieties cover small lands though. The planting density is high (5000-7000 plants for hectar) with a grape production for plant of 1-1.5 kg.


Our wines are fruity wines and modern, with a clear and round taste by giving value to our traditional grape variety. After the fermentation in steel and cement tanks, the DOCG wine finishes inside typical oak barrels of 25 and some IGT wines in Barriques and Tonneaux.


Since 1993 the company has been certified organic.

We believe that the use of only natural products, respect for biological balances and biodiversity are the basis of an agriculture that respects the environment and people and is able to produce the highest quality food: healthy, guaranteed and certified.

Preferring the purchase of organic food and products with a low environmental impact is a conscious choice for a sustainable future.

For us, organic does not just mean respecting a production specification, it is our company philosophy. Since 2007 we have a photovoltaic system for the production of electricity and since 2011 a biomass boiler. Both meet the needs of the whole company.

The organic certification body is the Consortium for the Control of Organic Products based in Bologna.
