The origins of the Mannucci Droandi estate lie in farming and winemaking traditions, in practically all branches of my family. The Mannuccis were landowners in Valdarno at least from the early 19th century; from the 18th century the Droandis were definitely farmers in Carmignano, including the unforgettable Lorenzo Droandi (exponent of that elite of modern, expert farmers inspired by the teachings of Cosimo Ridolfi and Bettino Ricasoli), steward of the Fattoria del Borro in Valdarno in the late 19th century, and responsible for its layout which has lasted almost until the present day. An ancestor of my maternal grandmother, Francesco Carafa, was a wine merchant in Lucca more or less at the same time. Today the estate is family-run. I am the owner, assisted by my wife, Maria Grazia Mammuccini (also the daughter of farmers) and my nephews Andrea and Matteo Mammuccini. We aim for quality products and land, which is why, helped by qualified staff, we are committed to obtaining the best we can from a mixture of tradition and innovation, in order to carry forward what was built up by the generations before us.

Wine Tastings

Tastings in the Mannucci Droandi cellar are an opportunity to get to know the wines and the territory of the Chianti Colli Aretini and upper Valdarno hills. The company has been run since 2000 with the organic farming method, The main grape variety is Sangiovese and in line with the decision to safeguard biodiversity, the company collaborates with the Research Unit for viticulture of Arezzo thanks to the creation of a experimental vineyard in which old vines once widespread in the area and now at risk of extinction have been planted.


Microvinifications were made with the grapes of those old varieties which offered promising indications, therefore some vines such as Foglia Tonda, Barsaglina and Pugnitello were planted in the vineyards to enrich the blend and also vinified alone.


In the tasting you can choose among the wines produced by the company; Rossinello Toscana Sangiovese Rosato i.g.t., Campigliole Toscana IGT Bianco from Trebbiano and Malvasia, Chianti Colli Aretini, Ceppeto Chianti Classico, Ceppeto Chianti Classico Riserva and Campolucci Toscana IGT from Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah and finally the Vinsanto del Chianti Classico .

What they say….

We are certified….

SOLMACC  is a LIFE-co-funded project that runs from 2013 to 2018. Its ambition is to demonstrate that by applying optimised farming practices, organic farming can be climate-friendly. 12 demonstration farms across Europe (including our estate Mannucci Droandi) are therefore adjusting their farming techniques under the close supervision and monitoring of agricultural scientists.


From its foundation the Consortium has been protecting, overseeing and valorizing the Chianti Classico denomination. From the Consortium for the protection of Chianti wine and its mark of origin of the 1924 to today’s Consorzio Vino Chianti Classico the organization has changed its name and the design of its logo, but its trademark has always been the historic symbol of the Black Rooster.
