EXTERNAL DESCRIPTION Villa del Marchese is a magnificent historical residence, located in the countryside of Malmantile, in the Florentine Chianti area, and only 18 km from Florence. Dating back to the year 1000, over the centuries, the villa had the most important and noble Florentine families as its owners. The first owners of the villa were the Pazzi (Florentine family) who used it as a summer residence. Afterwards it was the turn of Frescobaldi (another noble Florentine family that has been produced for centuries the most prestigious Tuscan red and white wines). In modern times the villa has passed to Fucini (family of poets and great geologists) and currently belongs to Dorin, another important Florentine family.
