Lucciano - Visit Quarrata



Home / luoghi / Lucciano

Lucciano rises on the slopes of Montalbano. It has been a favourite land for wine and oil production since the end of the 19th century.


Located on the slopes of Montalbano, Lucciano is a hamlet of the municipality of Quarrata.

Here, in the first half of the 13th century, there was a rural town called districtus pistoiese, but the first records of the town date back to the period of Bishop Ildibrando (about 1132).

There was once a fortress in the area, which was destroyed at the end of the Middle Ages. In its place, today, is the Church of Santo Stefano with paintings and frescoes by Florentine and Pistoia artists.

The Spalletti estate

The land in the area is heavily devoted to the cultivation and production of typical local products. A historic example is the estate of the Spalletti family, which, since it was bought by Count Venceslao Spalletti in 1889, produces oil and wine, such as Chianti Montalbano Tenuta DOCG.
