    From the friendly welcome, the interesting tour and fantastic meal and wine I cannot recommend this place enough.

    We chose the guided tour and meal with wine tasting package. All in all the tour was about one hour long with some interesting historical stories about Verrazzano and the wine making process. We then had the meal in the main restaurant which was four courses of traditional Tuscan food. We started with a cold meat and cheese platter moved onto a pasta dish and then onto some grilled sausage and chops finished off with some apple cake, the whole meal was paired with wines from the Veranzzano winery. My wife who is mainly vegetarian requested this option and the quality of the vegetarian meal was excellent with a wide variety of different Tuscan delicacies

    The quality of the wines and food was exceptional and the amount we received was more than enough. We went away feeling extremely full!

    The views you get from the tour are stunning as is the whole area. I highly recommend the trip to the Verrazzano castle and one of the organised tours.

    The apartment over the wine store was spacious and impeccably furnished. We even had our own private garden. The church bells were heartwarming. Matteo and his wife were superb hosts. This was our favorite location in our month long travels in the Tuscany area. Highly recommend. Once in a lifetime experience. Oh, and the wine… amazing. Had to ship some home and it is only opened for very special friends 😉

    The triangular shape of the square gives it a special character. It is lined with nice shops and fine restaurants (although the best are found elsewhere)

    We had an amazing tour and tasting at this winery. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the wines. The wines were excellent, so much so that we bought some to take home to enjoy with dinner. Their olive oil is also very good. If you are in Panzano, make an appointment to see this winery.

    It’s an 8th Century small church located in the middle of the vineyards. Underneath in the Crypt is the cave for wine. Gorgeous scenery!

    A nice statue of the hometown explorer. He was the first European to explore the Atlantic coast of North America between New Brunswick and Florida back in 1524.

    Just off the main square of the town. Unfortunately the church was not open when I was there. Nonetheless I enjoyed walking over to it and seeing the architecture.

    The location is absolutely stunning halfway from Siena to Florence. The Etruscans certainly valued this place.
    Black Rooster "Chianti Classico" signs everywhere on the way.

    This church is significant to me because it is so 20th century. The doors are fabulous with modern metalwork.

    The painting at the altar reminds me stylistically of Thomas Hart Benton. Such an unexpected thing to see.

    The air still had incense from mass... this is a real center of Christian community, not a museum.

    Non believers may not be moved but I was.

    "Castello" in central and northern Italy (and therefore also in this case) hasn't the same meaning as "Castle" in English: it isn't the residence of a lord (or at least, it is not just this one), but is originally a real village surrounded by walls.
    Sezzate is no exception: it is a village in an idyllic position and admirable for its state of preservation, which dominates the valley of the creek of the same name, at a point where it narrows and so it is better controllable for military purposes. Beautifully restored, it now belongs to a single owner; then retrospectively it deserves the name of the castle in every sense.
    It 'easy to reach it from the highway Greve-Cintoia, through the public path n. 18 of the Italian Alpine Club, which is part of the so-called "Cintoia ring" and that leads to the castle through an ancient bridge over the Sezzate creek. Immediately below the castle, following the path inside a beautiful olive grove, you can admire both the wonderful grove itself, the imposing building, and the wide view on the north, towards the Florence's basin.

    Montefioralle, an ancient walled village, is located less than 1.5 kms from Greve in Chianti, the center of the Municipality, and it's on the road leading through the hills west of Greve, towards the ridge that separates the valley of Greve river and that of Pesa river.
    Historians tell us that the hierarchical relationship between Montefioralle and Greve was originally the inverse of the current one: Greve was a tiny settlement belonging to Montefioralle, and it developed relatively late in the Middle Ages as a market place, favored by the City of Florence.
    Given the short distance, the village can also be reached on foot. There is no marked trail, but it is easy to identify the path starting from Greve (the route is also marked on a map that can be downloaded from the Greve municipality website).
    You almost always walk along the paved road, but car traffic isn't heavy, therefore it doesn't bother you.
    The village is well preserved and therefore it's appreciable; but I would say that central Tuscany is full of villages comparable to this.
    Moreover, it seems likely that a house inside the village belonged to the family of Amerigo Vespucci, the discoverer who inter alia explored - at the beginning of the 16th century, commissioned by the king of Portugal - the coast of the current Brasil, and gave its name to the American continent. A circumstance so evocative, which would give glory to the village, however, isn't reported anywhere on the site.
