The very fest mention of the castle Il Palagio dates back to 1252, though it is thought to be much older. Events of different nature have distinguished the story of this important building, whose proportions and impregnability have enabled it to hold out against the several raids during the centuries. Castello Il Palagio has been producing wines for over 200 years. We have about 100 hectares of land, 25 of which are vineyards. We produce fifteen different wines and 90% of our production is Chianti Classico. Our vineyards are on hills, mainly with an exposition towards southwest on a calcareous land rich in albarese and marl, 300 meters above see level. We use traditional methods of cultivation, paying attention to the new enological techniques – Description from castello Il palagio

  • Castello Il Palagio Prosecco NV

    Snoothrank:

    Very crisp, dry sparkling but so well done that even my 'sweet-wine-only' friends were asking for a second glass. Read More

  • Castello Il Palagio Chianti Classico Riserva 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Blows their newer vintages away. Great example of the benefits of aging, particularly with Sangiovese. Everything has softened, mellowed, settled and deepened to one rich, harmonious wine. Cannot wait to open my next bottle! Read More

  • Castello Il Palagio Montefolchi 2003

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is red and clear in color. It is obtained mainly from Merlot yielding a very fine scent, a very soft and velvety flavour that sometimes remembers little red fruit (like raspberry or blackcurrant) or tobacco. Paired with the vineyard's garlic bread and very tasty pairing. Read More
