The views are amazing, scenery is great. We walked around the grounds, the church is the most beautiful was very happy we were able to get in to see it. I would recommend a stop at this location, well worth the 5E entrance fee

This gorgeous castle has a beautiful view. There is some parking at the top. If touring the castle I’d recommend it. It’s quite a hike up the hill.

Great wine tasting. Beautiful vineyard views. Highly recommend the Brolio Bettino Chianti Classico DOCG 2015. The chapel, crypts, art & armory are also very interesting.

I first read about the Castello in a guide book then looked it up on line. The garden tour with a tasting looked like a good way to try something new during our Chianti visit, having been to several other vineyards in the area. I...More
