About Mannucci Droandi

The Mannuccis were landowners in Valdarno at least from the early 19th century; from the 18th century the Droandis were farmers in Carmignano. Today, the estate is family-run. Roberto Mannucci is assisted by his wife, Maria Grazia Mammuccini and nephews Andrea and Matteo Mammuccini.The estate is divided into two main parts. The first is the Campolucci property (Latin for “field of the holy wood”), this is the location of the winery and cellars. Along with cultivated land and woods, this property has been owned by the family since 1929. Campolucci is situated on the eastern slopes of the Chianti mountains (Chianti zone, subzone of Colli Aretini) It consists of 6.5 hectares of medium-textured alluvial, sandy, and silty soil with excellent aspect and aver-age altitude of 250 meters.

The property is situated on the west side of the Chianti mountains(Chianti Classico zone), at 450m above sea level, on the southernslope of the hill. The soil here is medium-texture clayey soil, with plenty of stones. Certified Organic
