Ristorante San Michele all’Arco – Farm to Table
Fattoria San Michele a Torri takes its name from the homonymous village and is located in the hills of Chianti, south-west of Florence. It extends over 370 hectares of land, of which 53 are vineyards, 60 are olive groves and the rest is arable crops and wood. Certified as organic farm since 1993, not only does San Michele a Torri represent the typical Tuscan farm for its high quality products, but it also prides itself on a production system based on respect of natural balances which make San Michele environment unique and rich in biodiversity. The excellence of our products is a result of the synergy of biological balances: meat, hams, salami, cheese, saffron, spelt, small chickpeas of Chianti, Marano corn flour are our authentic specialities from guaranteed organic production. Bees produce organic honey offered in two varieties of acacia and mixed flower. Wines and olive oils from San Michele a Torri are distinguished for their absolutely unique quality resulting from an ideal wine-growing soil combined with a strictly ecological production. Our Vinsanto also represents a flagship product, made from 90% Trebbiano grapes and 10% San Colombano grapes, bottled after 5 years of fermentation and refinement.
Fattoria San Michele a Torri is located within the wine-making area of Chianti, 15 km from Florence, at an altitude of 211 meters above sea level, among vineyards and olive groves that gently slope toward the valley of the river Pesa. Extending across 370 hectares of land, of which 53 are vineyards, 60 are olive groves and the rest is arable crops and wood, the Fattoria San Michele a Torri is situated between two wine-producing areas: Chianti Colli Fiorentini and Chianti Classico. This habitat is particularly committed to viticulture: it produces fragrant and velvety red wines with a strong character. Current owner Paolo Nocentini has given new input and development to the traditional agricultural method: he renewed and expanded the cultivations orienting the company towards the organic production.
