Castello di Volpaia

The 11th-century fortified village of Castello di Volpaia, close to the village of Radda in Chianti, was strategically built on the Florence/Siena border. Although only part of the original protective walls and just two of its six towers are still standing, the medieval layout and buildings within the village are still intact, making this undoubtedly one of the best-preserved villages of its period. Since 1250 Volpaia has been an important part of the Lega del Chianti (Chianti League) and it has maintained the tradition of winemaking up to the present day. In particular they make good Chianti Classico Riserva Coltassala, marked its cherry aromas, mingled with floral scents, as well as their more structured Super Tuscan Balifico. Guided tours take you through the castle cellars and the cellars of the various churches which are today dedicated to the making and ageing of Volpaia’s wine. Castello di Volpaia is still a family property, personally run by Giovannella Stianti, her husband Carlo Maria Mascheroni and their children Nicolò and Federica. Volpaia also offers accommodation with gardens and a pool, a small restaurant and hands-on cooking courses.
