New wine labels for Malenchini




Hot on the heels of the success of desired destination wedding venue Villa Medicea di Lilliano and the recent opening of urban luxury apartments Peruzzi Residences in Florence’s Santa Croce quarter, now the Malenchini family have rebranded their wines.



Contemporary while retaining Italian refinement, the updated sleek labels are an outward expression of the modern direction embraced by the Malenchini family, who have been producing award-winning wines in the hills near Florence for over a century. The fresh and fun packaging is proudly emblazoned with the logo of the Chianti Colli Fiorentini wine consortium as well as the estate’s crown-topped flag emblem.

The contents inside the bottle evolve all the time as quality comes from years of expertise and experience. From the cherry-scented Chianti DOCG to the bold Super Tuscan IGT Bruzzico and luscious Vin Santo patiently aged in small oak barrels, September is a stellar month to explore the Villa Medicea di Lilliano Wine Estate. Experience the grape harvest among the berry-heavy vines, explore the ancient cellars on the winery tour and savour tastings in the quintessentially Tuscan wine shop.



The cooking class experience in the villa’s historic kitchen is a memorable activity as Italian mamma Monica shares her family recipes for typical Tuscan dishes, such as fresh pasta and tiramisu.

Don’t miss the free Sound Stations Jazz Concert on September 15.


Starting at 9pm, Nicola Vernuccio and Claudia Tellini will perform a repertoire that resembles a long, delicate weaving of fragments: operetta, musicals, jazz, jewels of African and Mediterranean traditions, and spiritual music, which are anything but predictable. During the evening, guests will be able to taste and purchase the new-look Malenchini estate wines.
