STATE AND FINISHES This lovely Tuscan estate was built in an area which was once inhabited by Etruscan people (exploiting the excellent olive trees growing in the area) and overlooks the green lush hills of the Amiata mountain, a mystical natural park with Europe’s largest beech forest (between Val d’Orcia and Maremma). The buildings in the property have been exquisitely restored over the years in order to preserve their original Tuscan look. Beautiful frescoes have been added. Buildings are made out of stone, in typical rustic style, which have been masterfully recovered to their original beauty. On the inside, all the canonical traits have been highlighted: wooden beams still support the ceilings, floors are paved in terracotta tiles and walls are plastered and painted in light colors which make for beautiful bright rooms. EXTERNAL AREA The estate is made up of 21.5 hectares of land. The most important part of the estate is the olive grove (12.7 hectares) which is currently exploited to produce an excellent organic Olivastra olive oil DOP. Moreover, the estate has an organic vineyard (1.3 ha), woodland (0.6 ha) and finally 6.9 ha of arable and grazing land. The villa is embellished with a finely landscaped Italian garden with roses and little ponds. There are hedges, flowers and gravelled walkways. The Infinity swimming pool is nestled in the middle of the estate and offers an uninterrupted view of the green hills of the Amiata. The greenhouse allows the production of seedlings for the Italian garden and the vegetable garden, and serves as a wintering place for vulnerable plants. DETAILS ON OIL PRODUCTION The olive trees in the property all belong to the renowned cultivar Olivastra seggianese. These trees, which used to grow spontaneously on the slopes of Monte Amiata, were initially exploited by the Etruscans to produce body oils and balms (rather than as a condiment) and historically this fact is proven by several vases depicting the harvesting of olives. On this subject, a special mention goes to the Progetto Eleiva which was carried out recently in Tuscany and aimed to trace an accurate historical account of olive cultivation in Val d’Orcia by using new and modern techniques to spot those millenary trees which can be dated back to the time of the Etruscan findings in the area. The great resistance of the trees to adverse climatic conditions and the high oil yield of the olives (which can easily reach 20% when in full maturation) contributed to the diffusion of this plant for the production of oil, allowing it to become one of the most appreciated varieties. Oil produced in the estate has won several awards in the past year: it was awarded a silver star in the New York International Olive Oil Competition 2016 and received the Best Packaging of the Year award at the International competition MonoCultivarOliveOil BIO. A renowned restaurant in Florence has chosen the olive oil produced by the estate for the local. - Surface: 12.7 ha (certified organic) - Number of trees: ~ 1,700 - Cultivar: Olivastra Seggianese (95%), Frantoiano, Leccino and Moraiolo (5%) - Altitude: 350 – 450 m - Harvesting: mechanic - Yearly production: 7.1 hl (on average) DETAILS ON WINE PRODUCTION - Vineyard surface: 1.3 ha - Varieties: Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Franc - Altitude: 400 m - Exposure: Southeast (Sangiovese), Southwest (Merlot, Cabernet Franc) - Harvesting: manual / mechanic - Yearly production: up to 5,000 bottles - Workers: one with fixed-term contract - Wines produced: Rosso DOC Maremma Toscana - Containers in the cellar: stainless steel vats (n°22 for total 234.5 hl), barriques (n°23 for total 51.7 hl), barrels (n°7 for total 34 hl), plastic tubs (n°4 for total 9.9 hl), demijohns (n°8 for total 3.5 hl) USE AND POTENTIAL USES The estate offers plenty of commercial possibilities. The olive oil and wine production secure a steady income and can easily be expanded. The property has also shown to be extremely fit for short term rental business for people seeking a luxury wellness stay, in combination with workshops and services. The size of the estate (12 persons, with the possibility of expanding to 18/20 people) allows catering large groups and venue rental for special events (such as weddings), which is a profitable niche market. The estimated return on investment ranges around 2/3%.
