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 2011

    Snoothrank:

    95% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo Dark on the nose and a bit sweet smelling with a beautiful melange of frutti del bosco, woodland spices, and mineral aromas. A bit chunky in the mouth and rich with ripe cherry fruit, this lacks a bit of structure, turning soft on the palate which is a bit roasty and fudgy. that roasted fruit does show fine persistenc...

  • Chianti Verrazzano Italy 2004

    Snoothrank:

    I only start my adventure with wine, but I love good sweet wines, and I knew Tokaj Aszu and Eiswein before tasting this Vin Santo ( 04.03.2009). Maybe that's why i astonished me so greatly. First impression: perfect blend of sweet wine and single malt whisky. caramel, vanilla, oak, raisins and fresh grape notes in the nose. Mouth: elegant, sweet... Read More
