CastelGiocondo

The estate and its vineyards are overlooked by the village of CastelGiocondo.
Surrounded by the greenery of woods and Mediterranean scrub as far as the eye can see, the castle was built in the 15th century as a defensive stronghold. Restored at the beginning of the last century, it became part of the Frescobaldi family property in 1989.
Since then it has been possible to book a CastelGiocondo visit with wine tasting before seeing the collection and spending the night in the village’s newly restored rooms.
