Pieve di Campoli
The Diocesan Institute for the Support of the Clergy of Florence was born in 1985, following the new law on the concordat stipulated by the Italian State with the Catholic Church. The Institute, heir of the centuries-old parish priests, became in that year the owner of the Pieve di Campoli agricultural company, whose registered office is located in Florence.
The Pieve di Campoli company includes over 50 hectares of vineyards, located in the Chianti and Chianti Classico areas of the municipalities of Barberino Val d’Elsa, Tavarnelle Val di Pesa and San Casciano Val di Pesa, producing IGT, Chianti, Chianti Classico, Vinsanto del Chianti Classico. The winery is located in Barberino Tavernelle.
The main cultivated variety is Sangiovese, as well as smaller plantings of Syrah, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Canaiolo and Colorino. White grapes are also grown, predominantly Malvasia and Trebbiano.
Alongside the production of wine, there is a substantial production of extra virgin olive oil, over 20,000 olive trees are planted on approximately 100 hectares of land scattered throughout the province.
It is clear how viticulture and olive growing represent important commitments, which have led the company administrators to make significant investments for the construction of a modern and functional mill and cellar, to ensure quality production.
