The Brunello, wine made with only Sangiovese, that challenges time and after years and years is still alive, refined and intriguing maybe contains the magical virtues that give skin the same youthfulness?
It is worth trying.
For this reason Donatella Cinelli Colombini has acquired from her winery Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino, the substances to produce grape powder, saline wine scrub, wine serum and wine massage fluid …. All that gives wellness and youthfulness to the skin.
These products contain the virtues of prestigious wines and will be used in a small massage room with 300 years of history: stone walls, a medieval stairway has been transformed into shelves, the 18th century flooring is rustic but original. Everything has been studied in the minimum detail so as to offer the guests at Fattoria del Colle a regenerating experience in every way, starting from the wellness area with the Turkish baths, sauna, sensorial shower and Jacuzzi, or in the small cave with its wooden tub that seats two where one soaks in wine, to then continue with a couples massage where the products used are made from the wines from Montalcino. A unique experience to which we can add a tasting of wonderful Brunello. Read more…

In 2009 the Società Dante Alighieri carried out a survey regarding the Italian words most known in the European Union, what resulted were terms for things to eat : Pizza, cappuccino, spaghetti and espresso. The word Chianti resulted in being the better known wine going strong especially in Luxemburg and in Belgium. Read more…

Wellness centre with a view at agriturismo Fattoria del Colle

In the new wellness centre of the Agriturismo Fattoria del Colle in Trequanda, which is owned by Donatella Cinelli Colombini, the surrounding countryside itself creates  part of the relaxing ambiance, the stunning vineyards, the vegetable gardens full of tasty produce, the themed guided tours and walks and the many festivals and celebrations which occur frequently through the year where you can meet new people and make new friends

‘The wellness centre will have a huge jacuzzi for private use, it will be able to be used exclusively by you together with your friends and family. You will be able to enjoy a great wine at sunset with views of some of the most beautiful countryside in the world stretching out in front of you.’This is the vision which has inspired Donatella Cinelli Colombini to develop the new Spa Centre in the Fattoria del Colle in southern Chianti. ‘It is a lovely property which will be available for up to 6 people for their exclusive use thus ensuring total privacy.’  Donatella concludes. But these are not the only things which make this relaxation centre unique. The design concept and the facilities are very modern however it has further been enhanced by the addition of some hand-made tiles whose designs are based on the illustrations found on nineteenth-century tiles which were used in traditional Turkish baths of that period and the Odalisque which were painted by Ingres. These  stunning decorations help to create the relaxed ambience and felling of wellbeing and, dare we say, makes the environment a little bit sexy. Here you have the opportunity to enjoy delicious wine whilst relaxing in the warm water of the pool.

The Relaxation centre is being created for the use of the guests of the Fattoria del Colle which include many  different types of people, some professional and some intellectual, in particular we find that foreigners are attracted to come and enjoy a visit at the fifteenth  century farm house.  All the Apartments and Bedrooms are furnished with Antiques, but no televisions, there are 3 swimming pools, 4  gardens  and parkland with age old trees, a games lodge with a pool table,  a restaurant which serves traditional local dishes from the Siena area (which have been even further improved by our excellent chef), a cooking school and  most important of all two wineries for the production of Brunello, Chianti and Doc Orcia wine.

The Relaxation Spa Centre has been created in an annex of the villa and has breathtaking views over the Val d’Orcia and the Crete Senesi. It is equipped with a turkish bath, a sauna,  a relaxation room, a hydro massage shower, a Kneipp pool and a hot tub. Individual massages take place directly in the guests own rooms to ensure maximum comfort and privacy.
