Arillo in Terrabianca

A brief history

In the heart of Chianti Classico, between the provinces of Siena and Florence, in the hamlet of San Fedele a Paterno in Radda in Chianti, rises the most historical of the three Arillo’s estates: Terrabianca, whose name pays homage to the characteristic whitish soil of this area, a unicum in the Tuscan landscape.

The first evidence of the presence of a farm in Terrabianca are dated back to the Middle Age, as a property of the Bishopric of Siena and controlled by the Florentine County. The first vineyards were planted last century, in the 50s. The contemporary history of Terrabianca started in 1988, when the Swiss family Guldener bought the estate and gave a strong and recognizable international character to the winery and its wines.

The estate, facing south in a natural valley, lies at the foot of the northern hill of Vagliagli and spreads over a fresh soil made of marl, clay and stones, surrounded by 121 hectares of woodland. Thanks to a significant altitude that vary between 350 and 470 meters above the sea level, the vines enjoy a unique microclimate, made of light, warmth and high temperature ranges.
