Nibbiano has an historical name which dates back to the Romans who occupied these rolling hills at the feet of the sandstone and travertine natural stronghold on the top of which is built Montepulciano.
The name in fact does not originate from Nibbio ( a sort of bird of prey which is quite popular on the sky of the Valdichiana), but from "Naevianum praedium" which means "countryhouse of the Nevii family ”, a family from the south of Italy who had established here during the Roman domination .
Nibbiano,the suggestive name, only adds to the ideal location of the farmhouse, sheltered from strong winds but airy, surrounded by century-old oaks, situated In a landscape of wild beauty mixed with well arranged, cultivated fields.
Medieval documents have proved the existence of Podere Nibbiano since XIV century, although we can reasonably think that it must be situated on the place of the ancient roman country house or not far from it.
The original structure of the farmhouse is a barbican stone and brick wall typical of the most beautiful and oldest farmhouses in Tuscany whch was also earthquake resisstant . The rest of the house is in stone and bricks.
Some parts added between XVII and XIX century and the most recent restorations have given the farmhouse its present shape.
