Castello di Albola

The medieval village of Castello di Albola stands on the magnificent Chianti hills, in an unique location known for the charm of its history, the evocative power of art and the unique landscape and rural context of unrivalled harmony.

Throughout the ages the estate has belonged to some of the most noble Tuscan Families, from the Acciaioli and the Samminati to the Pazzi and the Ginori Conti. The winery has now been in the care and protection of the Zonin Family for over 40 years.

Gianni Zonin’s first task was to ensure that the vineyards would produce high quality grapes. Then he restored the outbuildings and the beautiful villa that had been built in the 16th century but maintained in its two massive towers the traces of the original mediaeval castle.

In addition to the restoration of the main villa and of the hamlet, the rural outbuildings have also been refurbished and are now used as accommodation. A new wine cellar has also been built in perfect harmony with the landscape.

The Zonin Family has enlarged both the vineyards and the estate, which today covers 900 hectares, of which 150 are under vines and over 4 thousand olive trees are grown.
