The Corliano estate is situated within the wine-producing area of Chianti in the Florentine hills. The Arno River, which runs along the foot of these silent hills, carrying with it the rich history and art from its passage through the city of Florence a few kilometers upstream, slowly flows into the meanders of the valley floor and marks the divide between this and another important wine-producing area, the "Carmignano", whose wines are by now known throughout Europe.
