Embrace the ultimate Chianti experience at Fonte de' Medici with a first-hand peek into the rich world of Tuscan treasures and wines. The Resort is run by the esteemed Antinori family whose most famous wines, the Super Tuscans Tignanello and Solaia, are made from vines grown around the Fonte de' Medici estate. Two restored medieval villages located in the heart of the Chianti Classico region comprise the resort: Santa Maria a Macerata and Podere Tignanello.
Santa Maria a Macerata is a typical Chianti borgo where you will find Fonte de' Medici's reception and all the common facilities such as the swimming pool, conference room, wellness center, tennis court and a number of apartments. Here, too, is the estate's restaurant, Trattoria della Fonte offering a wide range of authentic Chianti dishes, simple but rich in traditional flavors. Taking the picturesque country road that winds through the vineyards, you arrive at Podere Tignanello on the hill facing Santa Maria. More attractive apartments and a second swimming pool are located here, in a peaceful setting surrounded by olive and cypress trees.
The six apartments and five guestrooms and suites are built in rustic stone reminiscent of the typical Tuscan farmhouse. All of the accommodations boast an independent entrance and an outside garden (some with a grill and large fireplaces), terracotta floors, wood-beamed ceilings, very spacious bathrooms and well-equipped kitchens. Room amenities include air-conditioning, telephone and satellite TV.
Breathtaking views of the rolling Chianti hills make Fonte de' Medici Resort the ideal place to relax and recharge your batteries. In addition to the two outdoor pools, the resort has a tennis court, Turkish bath, sauna and a small gym; guests can also sign up for a cooking class or a guided wine tasting in the Tignanello cellars.
