A Day to the undiscovered Chianti Classico Wine tours

Yesterday we had a great day with our friends from Altour Company and Alessandra a private tour guide on the route through the hills of Chianti Classico hills of Tuscany.

We started from our villas of il Fontanaro Organic farm house and villas and we follow the road to Castiglion del Lago, Siena exit Casetta.

No comments for the breathtaking views, medieval villages, incredible food where we have breathed and  the genuine atmosphere of our  Tuscan heritage.

More than all we love Castello di Brolio, the oldest winery of Tuscany.

We’ve visited also the museum, four rooms that show you a big part of the Italian History and of the Ricasoli family.

We had a fantastic wine tasting at the Enoteca and a memorable lunch with fresh organic dishes paired with wines at Osteria il Castello.

A great fettuccina with truffle, the Tuscan Ribollita and the selection of appetizer where memorable.

lunch at osteria il castello

We’ve spent around four hours between lunch, tour and tasting.

After this we had a short shopping tour at Prada, only 30 minutes by the castle, but we suggest to keep going with a cultural tour in Siena or another wine tour there.
