The origins of the Tenuta di Lilliano go back to medieval times, where the whole farm was a fortification. But despite the walls Tenuta di Lilliano has seen devastating moments during the wars between Firenze and Siena. The position in the borderland between these republics was not always safe. For this reason the actual farm consists of buildings from the 19th century.
Tenuta di Lilliano was bought by the noble family of Ruspoli Berlingieri in 1920 and the activity started with bottling and dealing in 1958 under the Princess Eleonora Ruspoli Berlingieri. It is still the Ruspoli family running Tenuta di Lilliano.

It covers 460 hectares of which 50 are vineyards. Most of them perfectly facing South and South-East. The annual production is about 280.000 bottles of which close to 90% are Chianti Classico leaving space for only about 30.000 bottles of Tuscan IGT.
Tenuta di Lilliano use exclusively own grapes to assure their ambition of high standards.
