Castello di Vicchiomaggio near Greve in Chianti

Castello di Vicchiomaggio

The Castle of Vicchiomaggio is in fact a splendid Renaissance villa incorporating the remains of a very early, probably Lombard, castle. It is also a producer of some of the best Chianti Classico wines - indeed, some of the best wines in Italy. Vicchiomaggio occupies a strategic hilltop location on the Chiantigiana road from Florence through Greve in Chianti to Sienna, with wonderful views over the vineyards and the neighbouring villas, including the Castello di Verrazzano. Castello di Vicchiomaggio offers accommodation and also excellent wine tasting that can be combined with a traditional Tuscan meal at the castle restaurant.
