Fabrizio Dionisio

We are pleased to invite you to attend a wine tasting and guided tour of our winery “Il Castagno”, Cortona.

Syrah from Cortona is unanimously considered to be the best in Italy. We have focused on this grape variety with the desire to reach the highest level of quality that it could give. We produce wines that are artisanal in the strictest and most noble meaning of this term, with a clear Tuscan character, and firmly bounded with a terroir of origin – Cortona.

The tasting of 3 Syrah wines will take place in an old family “villa” built in 1600 and surrounded by the magical Tuscan landscape of woods, vineyards, and olive trees – yet only 5 minutes by car from Cortona.

Besides the villa and the vineyards, “Il Castagno” offers a fermentation cellar and a barrel cellar. It is here that the heart of the winery beats – this is why Fabrizio Dionisio named “Il Castagno” his signature wine.
