Live the unique experience of visiting a historic fortress, built to defend Florence, immersed in a breathtaking landscape. Take a dip into the past by visiting the Castle; discover the wine and olive oil route from harvest to bottling and pressing; taste the finest wines produced with love and passion by the family owner, amidst an atmosphere that oozes centuries of history.
Accompanied by an expert guide, you will visit an estate located in the area of Chianti Colli Fiorentini, taking a walk in the Castle’s subterranean cellars where the process of barrel-aging for Chianti Colli Fiorentini and barrique-aging for IGT wines slowly takes place. Here everything is prepared to enhance the quality of the grapes cultivated and harvested in the estate. Afterwards you’ll visit both the oil mill and the vinsantaia (Vinsanto winery) located inside the main tower, the latter of which houses the grape driers and the caratelli (Vinsanto barrels) used for the maturation of Vinsanto. The tour ends with a visit to the tower terrace, from where you can admire the breathtaking view surrounding the Castle. At the end of the tour you will taste the wines produced by this wonderful family.
The wine and olive oil tasting is held in a room of the castle and includes 2 wines and the “LAUDEMIO” Extra Virgin Olive Oil, accompanied by bread (fettunta-bruschetta, which is a roasted saltless bread), cold cuts, cheese and Vinsanto (the typical dessert wine of Tuscany).
After the tasting we will stop at the wine shop, where you can purchase the excellent products of the estate.
