Getting around
A few step away from the Villa, within driving distance, there is the famus Castello di Nipozzano, built in the year 1000 as a defensive fortress. The estate lies in the heart of the Chianti Rufina area, covering 626 hectares at elevations between 250 and 400 metres.The estate's soil, rich in clay and limestone, plus the dry, well-ventilated weather together compose the ideal terroir for the production of wines that are elegant, well balanced, and full bodied with firm structures to age well for many years.
