The "Villa Mangiacane" winery is located in the municipality of San Casciano in Val di Pesa in the Chianti Classico area of the Italian region of Tuscany. The name comes from Latin and means "big dog". Two large dog sculptures at the entrance portal are still the trademark. The villa was built in the 15th century by Cardinal Francesco Maria Machiavelli. As an architect, Michelangelo (1475-1564) was instrumental in drawing up the construction plans. For a while the villa was the main residence of the famous philosopher and politician Niccolò Machiavelli (1469-1527). In 1645 the villa was sold to the noble family Mazzei, who used it as a summer residence and as a farm for the production of wine and olive oil. Under the later owners the villa was almost completely neglected.

In the year 2000 the estate passed into new ownership. The villa was completely renovated and converted into a luxury hotel, the vineyards were replanted and a new winery was built. The total estate covers 306 hectares, but most of it is used for olive growing. The administrator is Pavlos Chimonides, the manager is Graziano Santoro, the cellar master is Valerio Versari and the oenologist is Marco Chellini. The vineyards cover 43 hectares of land between San Casciano Val di Pesa and Greve in Chianti at an altitude of 250 to 300 metres above sea level. They are planted with the red wine varieties Sangiovese (85%), Canaiolo Nero, Colorino del Valdarno and Merlot, and with the white wine varieties Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia del Chianti (M. Bianca Lunga). The wines are fermented in steel tanks and, depending on the type of wine, aged in French barriques and Slavonian 3.5-hectolitre oak barrels. The product range includes various wines DOCG Chianti-Classico and IGT Toscana. About 50,000 bottles of wine are produced annually - 95% are exported. The winery is in the Consorzio Chianti Classico.
