At the top of a hill surrounded by 309 hectares of vineyards, olive groves and woods stands the Villa della Paneretta. It was built around an ancient watchtower in the aftermath of the battle of Montaperti in 1260.
Then it was owned by the Carriers and passing from one noble family to another (including the Capponi and Gli Strozzi) became more and more a place of art culture and patronage, in the loggia you can appreciate frescoes by Poccetti, who before becoming Mannerist teacher, he decorated many Florentine facades including the wonderful Palazzo di Bianca Cappello.
Also the wine production has historical origins and is attested by documents dating back to 1596.
