We loved the wine tasting. The Brolio Bettino Chianti Classico DOCG 2015 was great. Good balance of tannins with great taste. Beautiful views of vineyards, castle, chapel, art and a great tour of the armory.

As the oldest vineyard in Italy, we had to come here! It did not disappoint and was fascinating to stroll around. The Keep, Castle gardens and surrounds are beautiful! The wine is not bad either!!
