Together with my family I visited the Castello da Verrazzano, one of our Chianti jewels. There was a good occasion to visit this castle because of the open cellars 2009, a week end dedicated to wineries. We visited the garden (very well maintained), the tower and the sign dedicated to Verrazzano, the sailor who discovered the Hudson Bay. Then we visited the cellars with its enormous barrels (80hl!) and finally the tasting. We had two red wines and something to eat together.
At the end of the tasting we proceeded towards another close by castle, the Castello of Vicchiomaggio, once a Medici residence, but unfortunately we didn’t have any visits or tastings because their cellars were only open at 11am and at 4,30pm (too late for us).
