Interaction with guests
- The main dining room accommodates 14 people on a large antique “fratino” table, has three comfortable armchairs covered in vintage velvet on a soft Iranian wool carpet facing the “pietra serena” fireplace. Rare vintage Empoli glass chandeliers can also be found in the dining room. The main dining room gives access to the drawing room, where an impressive collection of Chianti Classico wines from the end of the Sixties/beginning of the Seventies covers a whole wall of the room from the floor to the ceiling. This wine collection has a unique value, being the only existing one so far that gathers all the labels produced by every single wine estate in the Chianti Classico area in that specific period.
