Fattoria di Rodano is located along the road leading from the Elsa Valley to Castellina in Chianti, at an altitude between 200 and 300 metres above sea level. This is one of the roads forming the old “Via Franchigena", used in the Middle Ages by pilgrims to travel from Northern Europe to Rome. In Rodano an old Benedictine house existed where the pilgrims used to stop during the long travel. On the western side of Chianti Classico's territory the hills are easy and open to a climate mildened by sea winds.
