The land

Tuscany is coloured by sweet violet hues nestled among silver olive trees and red grape vines

Between the hills of Chianti and Valdarno

The Iris grows amid the most authentic Tuscan beauty

Greve in Chianti, the slopes of Pratomagno, Pian di Scò, Castelfranco di Sopra and Loro Ciuffenna are some of the areas where the Iris grows between olive trees and grapevines. From a region unique for its excellent product, the Tuscan iris is the best on the market, in terms of quality and yield, thanks to the particular characteristics of this particular farmland. 

Unmistakable landscape

The iris forms part of Tuscany’s image and tradition

Iris cultivation is so rooted in the Tuscan region that it has become part of the imagination. Its properties were extolled since the time of Hippocrates and Pliny, while Valerius Cordus in his “Dispensatorium” of 1529 illustrated the merits of the Florentine Iris. The reasons for this Tuscan quality are firstly linked to the land, given that the iris adapts well to sloping terrains, the only crop to thrive in this high, hilly landscape.
