Europe / Italy / Tuscany
Casetta is the last farmhouse to be restored on the Estate, immersed in the Merlot vineyards for a holiday in true Tuscan style.
Casetta is one of the last great projects completed among the residences at Il Borro. It is a delightful luxurious farmhouse, set among the Merlot vineyards in a calm, soothing environment, sweetened by the natural light illuminating the interiors…because Tuscany means sun and tradition, but also style!
The exterior is dominated by a large garden which seems to lose itself in the vineyards, in perfect harmony with the interiors, clear and bright, finely furnished with furniture of Tuscan manufacture and with open beams and prestigious artisan ceramics. Inside, a warm blend of colors in wood and ivory tones with large windows open onto the garden and wrought iron details, characterize the living area. Rose, jasmine and the scent of lavender envelop the swimming pool, which rises up on a white Travertine peninsula, an ideal site for those unforgettable moments, an exotic aperitif or a romantic candle-lit dinner. Modernity and warmth, tradition and minimalism…harmony is created from contrasts and Casetta is a perfect example of this concept.
With its 700 hectares, the Il Borro Estate is bordered by the ancient "via dei Setteponti" road, a junction between the main Tuscan towns of Florence, Arezzo and Siena, in the basin of the Valdarno river valley. It is a region rich in art and culture.
The Estate, which lies on hills 300-400 meters above sea level, has a soil which is particularly favorable to the cultivation of vines and olive trees. Finally, an aspect which makes Il Borro still more special, is the presence of unspoiled woods which surround the entire Estate, where one can encounter many species of animals and plants. In the meadows of the Estate, the wonderful Chianina cattle repose and graze, while small squirrels may be observed frenetically running among the thick branches of the woods.
An oasis deep in the countryside, where every single thing has its own past, where each tree has its own story to tell...

The Estate Wines
The Estate, which extends through the Valdarno river valley to the foot of Monte Pratomagno, enjoys an especially favorable position as regards the cultivation of vines and wine production. It benefits from soil shaped by the waters of the huge lakes which, in the Pliocene era covered the entire valley; this geological origin, in addition to characterizing the appearance of the soil, has also strongly characterized its composition.
Today a total of 45 hectares are dedicated to the cultivation of vineyards, all situated between 300 and 500 meters above sea level, where each variety of grape has definitively found its own ideal terroir. The Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot grape varieties have been planted at an altitude of 300 meters. Sangiovese, however, has been planted at 350 meters. The highest part of the Estate, at 500 meters above sea level, is used for the cultivation of Chardonnay.
The Estate also makes their own brand of olive oil and three different types of honey.
