This vineyard estate has been running for over 1000 years, producing some of the best Chianti Classico wine in the world. With 52 hectares of vineyards, an ancient castle and cellar, there is much to see.
Upon arrival, you will join a 1.5-hour Classic Chianti Wine tour led by the estate.

This will include their acclaimed ruby red Chianti Classico DOCG wine, with its intense scents and rich fruity flavors. You may also taste the estate’s own Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar
