Rosa di Magliano is a small family-run certified organic farm. For almost fifteen years we have been growing roses to produce syrups and petals preserves. It is our main activity, with a rose garden of about 400 plants of “Rosa di Magliano” variety.
There are also olive trees, some fruit trees, in particular quinces, and several wild bushes from which we gather a small production of blackberries.
The house and the land are in the Chianti hills, in Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, in the small hamlet of Magliano, with a beautiful view over the Agliena valley and the Petrognano hill, the ancient city of Semifonte destroyed by the Florentines in the Middle Ages .
Most of the cultivation consists of what we call “Rosa di Magliano”. Over the years, other varieties have also been tested, such as “Charles de Mills”, “De la Maître École, Rosa gallica” Officinalis” but their purfum was not as intense and fresh as the” Rosa di Magliano” one. They only bring interesting shades to the color of the syrup and the preserves.
