Residenza Cornino is located on a hill outside the village of Castellina in Chianti in the province of Siena in Tuscany, Italy. Residenza Cornino is located in the Chianti Classico wine district in the countryside between Florence in the north and Siena in the south. To the west is San Gimignano and Volterra and to the east, Arezzo. An undulating hilly landscape meets you with vineyards, olive groves and medieval villages surrounded by ring walls, castles and wine producers' mansions (Palazzo).
Residenza Cornino is an old olive farm and a typical Tuscan country house (Casa Colonica) in stone dating back to the 1650s, who still have olive oil production.
Our olive oil is called "Residenza Cornino 1656 Olio Extra Vergine di Oliva". A noble exclusive natural product without chemical additives that contain only the first cold-pressed olive oil with olives from our own olive grove on the farm.
