Fattoria Lavacchio
Tuscany, Italy

Fattoria Lavacchio, located in the town of Pontassieve in Tuscany, Italy, is an organic estate that traces its origins back to the 18th century under the Peruzzi family. Later, in 1840, the estate was purchased by the Marchese Strozzi Sacrati, and in 1978, it was acquired by the Lottero brothers from Liguria, whose father is associated with the estate. Faye Lottero, who hails from Genoa and her partner Dimitri Sidorenko, currently own the estate. The vineyards at Fattoria Lavacchio cover 110 hectares of land on the summit of the Montefiesole hill between Sieci and Pontassieve, and are composed of stony soils and galestro. The estate produces wines under various denominations such as Chianti DOCG, Chianti Rùfina DOCG, Colli della Toscana Centrale, and Vin Santo del Chianti Rufina DOC Riserva. They have been making no added sulphite wines since 2011, aiming to create minimalist wines that are allergen-free. The estate has also been certified organic since 2004, and while they follow biodynamic practices, they maintain their organic certification. Additionally, the estate grows olives and raises rabbits and chickens, and has some truffle-bearing woodland.
