Italy View map

The Castle of Verrazzano is located on a hilltop in the Chianti Classico area, the first grape growing and wine producing area in the world to be determined by an official proclamation, made by the grand Duke Cosimo III de' Medici in 1716. Its high position, over the Greve valley, was once of strategic-military importance; today it is possible to easily overlook the vineyards which fan out across the slopes to the edges of the wood further down the valley. The castle was an etruscan then a roman settlement before becoming the property of the Verrazzano family in the VIIth century. – Description from JelaDragoljevic

  • Castello di Verrazzano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Elegantly smooth aromas of vanilla and violet with perfumed black cherry notes. Silky textured on entry this shows a bit more minerality and earthiness on the mid palate with black cherry and red currant fruit, some licorice and a dusty, dry, tannic chew on the finish with dark chocolate and rich vanilla extract.
