Rocca di Castagnoli

The winery, located in Castagnoli, is a must-visit. Dating back to the 10th century, the vineyards produce, amongst other wines, Chianti Classico, the traditional vino for the region.

We enjoy a tour of the cellars and learn first-hand the painstakingly patient method that goes into creating their fantastic wines and then revel in the tasting of several of them. They are so good that we purchase a mixed two dozen including some wonderful Chardonnay that is not typical of the region but is too good to ignore, and have them organize to have it all shipped back home.

It will be particularly nice to reminisce about our time in Chianti when drinking the wine over the next few years!
