This is: CASTELLO DI POPPIANO
“I believe that when love for your estate, vineyards and olive groves is transmitted generation after generation, it gets into your DNA.” Ferdinando Guicciardini.
Conte Guicciardini is a family-run business consisting of three estates in Tuscany:
POPPIANO CASTLE: Historic fortress built towards the end of the first millennium to defend the city of Florence and has been the historic company of the Guicciardinis since 1199. The estate is located in the Chianti Colli Fiorentini area. In the winemaking cellar, everything is set up to enhance the quality of the grapes grown and harvested in our vineyards. The maturation and aging, in barrels for the Chianti Colli Fiorentini and in barriques for the IGT wines, takes place slowly in the basement of the Castle and adds roundness, value and character to the wines which are completed with a few months of refinement in the bottle.
Castello di Poppiano is the headquarter of all management, administrative and commercial activities of the three estates pertaining to the Conte Guicciardini Group:
CASTELLO DI POPPIANO (Chianti Colli Fiorentini),
MASSI DI MANDORLAIA (Morellino di Scansano),
BELVEDERE CAMPÒLI (Chianti Classico).
The wines of all three companies are available for direct sale and tasting at the Wine Shop at the Poppiano Castle
