Two of these historic castles are among the most important wineries today active throughout Italy, where mainly DOCG Chianti Classico is produced. The first estate is surrounded by 230 hectares of vineyards and is the largest estate in the Chianti Classico area. In the cellar, characterized by modern machinery, wine is produced with the same excellence that the first producers pursued when they created the original formula in 1872. It is the oldest winery in Italy and the second largest in the world. Through the classic tour you will learn about the history of the founding family and the fascinating sites of the property including the 12th century gardens, the private chapel and the museum. After a dip in the past you will visit the ultramodern wine cellar and take part in the tasting. At the second winery dating back to 1256, you will visit the frescoed rooms, the small theater of the 18th century and the ancient underground cellars. Sangiovese is the main grape variety in the production of Chianti Classico DOCG but the company also produces other grape varieties, some planted in the 1980s (Merlot and Cabernet) and others in the 1990s when the white variety of Vermentino was introduced.
