MERLO ROSSO: IN THE MIDDLE OF A WORKING VINEYARD WITH PRIVATE POOL AND TENNIS C.

Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday villa in Montevarchi - Merlo Rosso

7 Bedrooms, 7 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14

The villa Merlo Rosso is a place of ancient memory and tradition. It was originally owned by the Florentine De’ Medici family in the early 1400s. It was built on the ancient remains of a fortified watch-tower which was used to defend the entrance to the luxuriant Ambra valley, situated between Siena, Arezzo and Florence. Today Merlo Rosso is an exclusive residence with six impressive bedrooms and suites which have been carefully filled with authentic period furniture. Vines have been cultivated in this area for the production of wine since Medicean times, as demonstrated by documents testifying to the Medici family’s predilection for the wines of the Ambra valley.

The villa is located at Montebenichi on the borders of the Chianti Classico district, in an area rich in pasture and woodland giving the rural landscape a wild, unspoiled appearance. Today, in addition to wine production, the estate’s completely renovated buildings offer excellent farm holiday facilities. The old farmhouse with its two level, surrounded by vineyards, offer visitors the chance to experience a unique, authentic holiday.

On the ground floor there is an entrance room with coats cabinet, a large dining room, a brilliant living room with an antique white grand piano, a well equipped cook’s kitchen with fireplace, a television lounge, several sitting areas, a bathroom, pantry and close terrace with gazebo for dining and living outdoors.

Upstairs there are six well appointed bedrooms and suites, each with its own en suite bathroom made of travertine marble stone, parquet floor made by hand and air conditioning system in the whole floor. A further double bed is available in 2013 in an annex close to the pool.

Outside there is a large Roman garden with a beautiful fountain, a huge private swimming pool, and a loggia perfect for cocktails. The beautiful garden has two levels and it is surrounded by the Tuscan countryside: the upper garden has an historical path with platano trees, private chapel, wide panoramic terrace. In the lower garden there is the private swimming pool (with shower and a laundry room). It is possible to connect the villa with the ceremony hall which is close to it and it is used to be the ancient cellar. A new pool is now ready only for the client of Merlo Rosso. A larger pool (25 m. x 8 m.) shared with 4 apartments is still available at 100 mt to the Villa.

Wine. This villa aims to combine the Tuscan wine culture with an innate passion for pleasure and beautiful things by offering wines of exceptional quality and elegance. These are the jewels of the unspoiled land filled with potential of the Ambra valley, reflecting the personalities, inventiveness and dreams of the people who created them. The property covers an area of approximately 100 hectares of land, 22 of which are vineyards. Mainly Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and, in part, Malvasia and Trebbiano Toscano are cultivated on plots planted with a very high density of up to 10,000 vines per hectare. It is possible to book guided tasting sessions for small groups as well as visits to the cellars and vineyards. In this way, visitors can learn about how the wines are made and preserved and enjoy their bouquets and flavors.
