Description

History

The Mazzei family has been producing wine since the eleventh century in Tuscany. Ser Lapo Mazzei is in fact known for having been the first to draw up a document in 1398 for the denomination of “Chianti”; subsequently, in 1435, his niece Madonna Smeralda Mazzei marries Piero Agnolo da Fonterutoli and thanks to the union, the Castle becomes part of the family heritage. Today the family has even reached the 24th generation of winemakers. Another key figure in the history of the family is Filippo “Philip” Mazzei, a close friend of Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin among others. Today the company is led by Lapo Mazzei, Cavaliere del Lavoro and president of the Chianti Classico Consortium for over 20 years, and his sons Filippo and Francesco.
