Uzzano Castle is a fine Renaissance villa located on the outskirts of Greve in Chianti. Traces of the ancient castle may be discerned in the remains of a watch tower but the predominant form of the structure is now a large 17 C villa with an excellent italianate garden restored in the 18 C. The wines now sold under the label “Castello di Uzzano” are produced from grapes grown on the former property of the villa, now separately owned.
