Located in Greve in Chianti, the castle became the property of the Verrazzano family in the 7th century. Giovanni da Verrazzano, the navigator and discoverer of the bay of New York and of the majority of the east coast of what is today the United States was born here in 1485.
At Verrazzano, you can take guided tours of the historical and still-working cellars. The tours are always completed with a guided tasting of the vineyard’s classic wines, extra-virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and Vin Santo.
