Poggibonsi , like many Tuscan cities was born of an ancient history that culturally marked these enchanting places. This superb Ghibelline town, proclaimed an "imperial city" by Frederick II of Swabia in 1220, was among the most beautiful in Italy, and prospered for only 115 years: in fact, being in the way of Florence's expansion, in November 1270 it was conquered by the Florentine and Neapolitan armies, supported by a strong contingent of French soldiers, after which the Florentines "bought" from the French the right to destroy the city.

Poggibonsi , like many Tuscan cities was born of an ancient history that culturally marked these enchanting places. This superb Ghibelline town, proclaimed an "imperial city" by Frederick II of Swabia in 1220, was among the most beautiful in Italy, and prospered for only 115 years: in fact, being in the way of Florence's expansion, in November 1270 it was conquered by the Florentine and Neapolitan armies, supported by a strong contingent of French soldiers, after which the Florentines "bought" from the French the right to destroy the city. While the wealthy merchants managed to flee at night, the less wealthy and the petty people remained there. The victors, however, forced the vanquished to descend to the slopes of the knoll and amalgamate with the population still living in the older Borgo Marturi.
After 1270 this land ceased to be known by the name Marturi or Borgo Vecchio and, inheriting its name from the "Noble Castle," adopted that of Poggibonsi, which it still retains.
Under the aegis of the municipality of Poggibonsi we find The Estate of San Fabiano Calcinaia , located among the prestigious Chianti hills. The manor house and cellars are part of a small medieval hamlet dating from the year 1000 AD. Careful renovation has kept its charm intact. The Borgo's tavern is a stone's throw from the farm of San Fabiano Calcinaia, and from it you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views of Chianti. The Borgo can accommodate those who want to spend a few days in the peace of the Sienese countryside tasting the excellent wines produced there and the renowned Tuscan cuisine.
The estate consists of 135 ha , accompanied by buildings totaling 7,300 sqm.
