The estate in its entirety covers about 48.6 hectares (120.1 acres) of land more than half of which is covered by forest (28.3 ha). Around the castle, the buildings can count on about 4,200 sqm of garden, which houses, on one of the terraces, the 18 x 9 m Infinity pool with panoramic views of the surrounding vineyards.

Agricultural activity focuses on the vineyards (12.1 ha), which are fully registered as Chianti Classico DOCG, and currently produce red wines, vinsanto and two types of grappa. 

The remaining part of the estate includes an olive grove (4.2 ha) and several patches of arable land (roughly 3.5 ha) which could be used to further expand the existing vineyards.




Inside the castle (1,420 sqm – 15,279 sqft) are currently 8 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, kitchen, hall, dining room, multiple reception halls and the historical wine cellar that includes a Roman wall. By converting some of the service rooms one could easily create up to 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms to be used for accommodation. The complex also includes a guest wing with separate entrance, featuring a kitchen, living/dining rooms, three bedrooms and two bathrooms.


The oldest written evidence of the castle dates back to the year 912 CE, but in the property some Etruscan finds and a Roman wall were found, proving that there was some sort of settlement in the area long before the Middle Ages. For centuries the castle had been contended by Siena and Florence in their long-lasting war until in the 1450s it ultimately passed into Florentine possession.

With the defeat of the Sienese Republic in 1559 the castle lost its military and strategic function and ended up in the hands of the powerful Florentine family Ricasoli who converted the complex into a private farm. The buildings were then progressively abandoned until in 1994 the new owners undertook a massive renovation of the complex.

The castle, located inside a medieval village, has been carefully restored with nice materials, respecting the traditional Tuscan materials and the original structures, but adding also services and up-to-date systems. Moreover, during the restoration, most of the vineyards were re-planted with new clones of Sangiovese. 

Internally, the property has exposed stone walls, brick arches, terracotta floorings, ceilings with chestnut beams and terracotta tiles, while externally it features stone and brick walls, thermally insulated window frames in chestnut with internal shutters in Tuscan style. It is equipped with the most up-to date electrical, plumbing and heating systems, and it has a security system. The bathrooms are particularly well-finished and well equipped.


The new wine cellar (1,000 sqm – 10,760 sqft) was built in 2001 and is a more modern building better suited to new winemaking techniques and processes. In the same building are the offices and an impressive tasting room. The wine cellar is equipped with modern stainless-steel machineries, barriques, tonneaux. Fermentation takes place in computer-controlled steel vats.

Chianti is a picturesque wine region located in Tuscany. The region covers a vast area that includes the provinces of Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Pisa, Pistoia, and Prato. Chianti is renowned for its stunning landscapes, rich history, and world-class wines. The region is home to numerous medieval hilltop towns, rolling hills covered with vineyards, and olive groves. The landscape is characterized by a mild Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and mild winters, which provides excellent conditions for growing grapes. Chianti is also a popular tourist destination, attracting visitors from all over the world who come to sample the local wine, enjoy the scenery and immerse themselves in the Italian way of life.

Chianti is one of the most famous wine regions in the world, and wine production in the area dates back to the 13th century. The region is particularly known for its production of Chianti Classico, a red wine made primarily from Sangiovese grapes, along with other local varieties. The production of Chianti wines is regulated by strict rules that govern the types of grapes used, the winemaking process, and the aging requirements. In addition to Chianti Classico, the area also produces other red and white wines, including Chianti Rufina, Chianti Colli Senesi, and Vin Santo. The region has a long and rich history, and winemaking has played a significant role in the local economy and culture for centuries. Today, the Chianti area is home to numerous wineries, ranging from small family-owned vineyards to large commercial operations, all dedicated to producing the highest quality wines.

It was in Gaiole, a charming town of 2,700 inhabitants, that Baron Bettino Ricasoli developed the Chianti Classico formula for four mixed grape varieties in 1872.
