Winery with castle for sale in the heart of Chianti, just 15 km from Siena, a city known all over the world and a tourist destination of great attraction.

The property of 1,420 sqm dates back to the 10th century and was renovated between 1996 and 2001. A new building was subsequently added to house the wine cellar, offices and tasting room.

Within the castle complex there are 8 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, kitchen, living room, dining room, numerous reception rooms and the historic cellar with a Roman wall still visible. However, by converting some of the service rooms, up to 20 bedrooms and 20 bathrooms could be created to be used for hospitality purposes.

The complex also includes a guest wing with a separate entrance, which features a kitchen, living/dining room, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The oldest written testimonies about the castle date back to the year 912, but Etruscan artefacts and a Roman wall have also been found on the property, proving the existence of some previous settlement.

For centuries the castle was at the centre of disputes between Siena and Florence, before coming under Florentine control in the mid-15th century. With the defeat of the Sienese Republic in 1559, the castle lost any defensive and military function and passed into the hands of the powerful Florentine Ricasoli family who converted it into a private agricultural company.

The buildings were progressively abandoned until the entire complex was renovated by the new owners in 1994.

The castle, located within a medieval hamlet, has been carefully renovated with quality materials, respecting traditional Tuscan materials and the original structures, but also adding technologically advanced services and systems.

Furthermore, during the restoration, most of the vineyards were replanted with new Sangiovese ones.

Internally, the property has exposed stone walls, brick arches, terracotta floors, ceilings with chestnut beams and terracotta tiles, while externally it is characterized by stone and brick walls, chestnut wood window frames (thermally insulated) with internal Tuscan shutters.

It is equipped with the most modern electrical, sanitary and heating systems and has an alarm system.

The bathrooms are particularly well-finished, finely finished and with all comforts. In 2001, a new cellar (1,000 sqm) was completed, more modern and suited to current production needs. In the same building, there are offices and a large tasting area. The cellar is equipped with modern stainless steel machinery, barriques, tonneaux. Fermentation takes place in steel vats at a computer-controlled temperature.

The estate covers in its entirety approximately 48.6 hectares of land, more than half of which is covered by woods (28.3 ha).

Around the castle, the buildings have approximately 4,200 sqm of garden which host, on one of the terraces, the 18 x 9 m infinity pool with panoramic views of the surrounding vineyards.

The agricultural activity focuses on the vineyard (12.1 ha), entirely registered as Chianti Classico DOCG, and currently produces red wine, vin santo and two types of grappa.
