Fattoria Ricudda 
The Ricudda Farm is located along a secondary route of the ancient Via Francigena, which in ancient times was traveled by pilgrims
who went from France to Rome and descended from the ridge of Castellina in Chianti towards the main routes of the Val D’Elsa.
It takes its name from the French Coude/Couder/ Recoude, which has the meaning of “elbow bend”.
The name of the farm can therefore be traced back to the "elbow" conformation of the farm land.

The Fattoria has been producing wine since the 15th century and is one of the oldest farms in the Chianti area. It is located in the municipality of Castellina in Chianti about halfway between Florence and Siena, at an altitude of about 360 m a.s.l. The farm and its grounds boast almost 800 years of history, from the first known acquisition a few years before 1300 by Bartolomeo di Grazia, a Florentine citizen of the time, who started production until our acquisition. The Squarcialupi family, the most powerful family in the history of Chianti, is also among the owners of the land. In 2016 the company was acquired by the Bojola - Australi families with the aim of converting production towards a 100% organic product. 6 hectares of new vineyards were replanted, modern equipment was purchased and the old farm that houses the farm and farmhouse was renovated. The result is a production of high quality Chianti Classico with Sangiovese grapes and organic olive oil.
