WHY IT IS CALLED RED LION WHEN THE LION ON THE FAMILY CREST WAS BLACK

The rampant lion is the symbol of the ancestors of Donatella Cinelli Colombini who built  Fattoria del Colle in 1592. The crests of this family, which was called Socini or Soccini, are in the entrances, on the ceilings and on some furniture of the villa. It is a very old family, very important and very rich but with a serious problem long ago: five of its members were Protestants and two of them, Lelio (1525-1562) and Fausto (1539-1604), were convinced opponents of the dogma of the trinity. Their theories made them famous throughout Europe, and even today their names are written in every philosophy textbook, but they were considered heretical by the Church and this led to the economic ruin of the whole family. The two thinkers were excommunicated and their assets confiscated.

Livio and Fausto Socini fled abroad and the rest of the family remained in Siena in poverty. At the beginning of the twentieth century Donatella’s great-grandfather, who was called Livio Socini, made his fortune with the distillation of alcohol, he was mayor of Siena (1914-1916) and, in 1919, he bought Fattoria del Colle and later discovered that this place had belonged to his ancestors.

Donatella received the farm from her father Fausto Cinelli in 1998 and dedicated the first wine they produced there to the Socini family, the “Leone Rosso” DOC Orcia.

The Fattoria del Colle has at its centre a sixteenth-century villa with a small hamlet transformed so as to accommodate tourists in rooms, apartments and villas, there are three swimming pools, a restaurant, a banquet and conference room, the area for natural well-being and the cooking school.

In the splendid winery for Chianti Superiore, Supertuscan and Doc Orcia wines, a new room is dedicated to the Sangiovese vineyard which is explained through a video showing the 4 seasons and in 4 different moments of the day.

TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE ORCIA DOC APPELLATION

The Orcia appellation was born on February 14th, 2000 in the hills that are located in the middle of the territories between Brunello and Vino Nobile. A beautiful area of ​​southern Tuscany, for the most part inscribed, since 2004, in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites precisely because of the agricultural landscape preserved over the centuries. For this reason, the Doc Orcia area is defined as the “most beautiful wine in the world”.

The proximity of two very large DOCGs – Nobile and Brunello – has pushed the Orcia producers to grow qualitatively very quickly and to create a distinctive identity for the millions of tourists and hikers, especially from abroad, who arrive in the area attracted by the beauty of the places and the quality of the wines.
