OUR STORY, A FAMILY STORY

T

wo

generations,

a

family

and

an

extraordinary

ambition have transformed a small wine cellar in

Tuscany into a leading brand on the Italian and global wine scene. Collections of superior quality composed of unconventional and unique wines offer the perfect compromise between the Italian historical tradition and the desire for innovation.

O

ur collection is made with grapes from the prized vineyards in Tuscany, the Chianti region, and the Prosecco regions of Veneto. These regions are a genuine expression of a prime winegrowing country and have the perfect microclimate for the ideal ripening of the grapes.

Lorenzo and Matteo Saraceni, well-known and admired hoteliers and restaurateurs, founded Fratelli Saraceni. With their expertise and passion they were driven to produce wines that would defy the expectations of their tasteful clientele. Thanks to an immediate success, the Saraceni family embarked on further expansion. Today, a wide array of Saraceni products can be enjoyed around the world.

OUR CORE VALUES

Passion, tradition and innovation are our core values and leading principles that we strongly believe and support throughout the Fratelli Saraceni brand. We pay extreme attention to the quality, detail, promotion and distribution of our products and build our relationships upon integrity, respect, fairness and trust. As a family company, we put these values above all. Fratelli Saraceni’s unmistakable style, expertise and ambition to continually renew itself created an outstanding enterprise from a small paradise in the heart of Tuscany to a worldwide, growing company with the same credibility and passion that it began with.

“INNOVATION AS STRATEGY, EXCELLENCE AS MISSION”

OUR CORE VALUES

INTEGRITY, RESPECT, FAIRNESS AND TRUST.

THE SARACENI GROUP Since the beginning, the Saraceni family wanted to include several unique activities and products to their company that shared their core values and passions: “high quality, strong ties with the territory and professional reliability”. This lead to the creation of what is now an inspiring group of food, beverage and hospitality services. The Saraceni group is therefore composed by, alongside the production of wines, the renowned and exclusive I Tre Pini restaurants and the famous Villa Machiavelli in Chianti Classico, one of the most historical winery and restaurant in Italy. Soon new brands and family estates will join the group to perpetuate and share our family values.

FIVE CENTURIES OF CHIANTI CLASSICO HISTORY

VILLA MACHIAVELLI

Tuscany is the birthplace of culture and distinguished men, of noble wines. In the municipality of San Casciano the Florentine Niccolò Machiavelli wrote The Prince and cultivated the vineyards and olive groves he inherited from his father. Here, Niccolò’s greatness became one with nature, authenticity and tradition. The plots and vineyards of the ancient Fontalle estate extend out from the tiny village across 27 hectares of specialised vineyard cultivation to produce the celebrated Chianti Classico DOCG, the Riserva, and other special selections of exclusive wines. Splendid cypress and oak woods still surround this hamlet where time seems to stand still. The cellars beneath Machiavelli’s house have not changed from the description given in a document dated 1498: “…wine storerooms opposite the so-called albergaccio”. The ranks of small prestigious oak barrels are still used to slowly mature the wines of Vigna di Fontalle. The historic Villa Machiavelli represents the oldest Chianti tradition. The estate is located at Sant’Andrea in Percussina, in San Casciano Val di Pesa in the province of Florence. Built 500 years ago, the cellar lies beneath the house where Machiavelli lived during his long exile from Florence. In 1512 and from 1513 onwards, Niccolò Machiavelli was confined to the Albergaccio, which adjoins the cellar. Here he pursued his writing, tended his fields and passed his spare time in the famous Hosteria. Machiavelli ran his vineyards and his farms well, taking a personal interest in their management. Careful restoration has returned the Osteria (Albergaccio) to its original structure. The kitchen and small rooms, furnished with much of the original furniture from the museum villa, provide visitors with a warm and welcoming environment in which to taste the simple dishes of traditional peasant cooking and the prestigious wines of Vigna di Fontalle and Poggio.

RISTORANTE ALBERGACCIO We cook elegant, rustic, honest food that will delight your visual and culinary senses, from classic, traditional flavours to new, inspired dishes cooked by super-skilled chefs. Careful and sensitive restoration work has now turned it into an elegant restaurant with great attention to detail. With the Florentine hospitality and a kitchen led directly by chef Libero and his sons Lorenzo and Matteo, this is traditional Tuscan dining at its best. The weekly-changing menu is the kind of food Libero, Lorenzo and Matteo want to eat when they’re at their happiest. Taking inspiration from traditional Tuscan recipes handed down through generations, all the dishes on our menu are designed for sharing. Using incredible Tuscan produce, whole animals are butchered and prepared on site every day, and paired with ingredients so good they really speak for themselves. via degli scopeti 64, Località Sant’Andrea in Percussina, 50026 San Casciano Val di Pesa (Firenze) (+39) 055 828471 - www.villamachiavelli.it

"Steeped in history: the thick stone walls and cellars, and the vineyards and landscape beyond were home to Niccolò Machiavelli during his troubled, creative exile from Florence. He would eat and play cards every day at the Albergaccio inn, and at night, in the library, he would read the classics that inspired his rapid drafting of The Prince. Beautifully restored, it has preserved the rustic, elegant cuisine of the Tuscan Renaissance with a wine-making tradition of the highest calibre."

Housed in a farmhouse from the ’500, I Tre Pini is located in the enchanting hills of Chianti region. The restaurant has several dining rooms furnished in elegant Tuscan style with large fireplaces warming the interior in the winter, and in the summer, surrounded by a large private park, I Tre Pini is perfect for pleasant evenings in the manicured garden. It was initially a post house, where travelers would stop to rest and change their horses before continuing along the road known as “The Wine Road” of the Chianti Colli Fiorentini. Careful and sensitive restoration work has now turned it into an elegant restaurant with great attention to detail. Come in and discover the finest delights of Tuscan cuisine, and enjoy the peace and quiet of a garden deep in the green, with cypress trees and splendid vineyards all around. Your experience at Ristorante I Tre Pini will not only exceed your expectations of taste, smell, and hospitality but also give you a true feeling of the culture and lifestyle of Tuscany. When you come to Ristorante I Tre Pini you will not only eat very well in a beautiful place, but you will have a unique experience worth remembering for years to come.

OUR CUISINE, HOMEMADE, WITH LOVE The traditional home cooking and is the strong point of I Tre Pini, which aims to enhance the quality and freshness of its preparations making us remember those flavors now lost. The specialties are prepared with great care by expert hands that work with passion in what they do by putting all the love for cooking and tradition of the area. Everything is seasonal at the Inn as we buy greens and vegetable from our local producers. Each ingredient is produced in a different season so that it can be highly appreciated and above all we help the local and rural economy of our "neighbours". via Imprunetana per Pozzolatico 134, 50023 Impruneta (Firenze) (+39) 055 208065 - www.ristoranteitrepini.it
