few words about our history and heritage

Tenuta Dolciano is situated 3 km from the etruscan town Chiusi in the province of Siena.

Completely immersed in the  charming Tuscan country side boasts the ancient beauty of a historical  hamlet back in the days self-sufficient.

You already find the farm that will constitute the core of Tenuta Dolciano back in in 1635,

which was bought by Francesco 1 dei Medici afterwards. In 1769 Pietro Leopoldo  (Granduca of Tuscany 1765-1790 and aftewards emperor of Austria ) goes personally to visit the Tenuta and in 1777 he starts the extension and renovation  of the buildings that will continue until the unification of Italy.

Around the year 1782 Dolciano is profoundly transformed in a hamlet with master Villa, wonderful italian-style gardens, lodgings for farmers, schools,stables and Church that today survive thanks to the constant commitment of renovation and care from the Bologna Family that from 24th of December 1864 is the owner of this estate.
