A medieval fortress among the vineyards of Chianti Rufina
Castello Nipozzano stands in the medieval heart of the renowned Chianti Rufina area.
The structure, built in the year 1000 as a fortress to protect Florence, takes its name from the absence of wells that characterised the area at the time.
A history-rich location that today produces the estate’s great wine, Mormoreto.
A petite boutique hotel in the hills and vineyards, twenty minutes away from Florence.
The four exclusive rooms in the hamlet of Castello Nipozzano have an enchanting view and are equipped with a Jacuzzi tub overlooking Chianti Rufina.
Upon making a reservation, you will have the chance to visit the entire castle, including its basement that has been transformed into the private wine cellar of the Frescobaldi family.
The castle visit is completed by tasting the estate’s wines, such as Nipozzano Riserva, Vecchie Viti, Montesodi and Mormoreto.
The restaurant – open by reservation – offers traditional Tuscan dishes revisited in a modern key, according to the seasonality of the ingredients.
Each dish emphasises the territory’s flavours and enhances the wine’s character with which it is paired.
The Frescobaldi cooking class experience allows you to experience cooking with farm-to-table ingredients. You will use only products from the vegetable garden to create typical dishes to enjoy together for a deep dive into the local gastronomic culture.
The Castle hosts private and corporate events, such as conventions and team building, on request.
There’s no question that Tuscany is the most well-known Italian wine region abroad. Its diverse territories are essential in determining the character of the food and wine from here. Cradle of Italian language and culture, Tuscany is an unmissable stop for those who wish to dive into the history of a land that gave birth to the such of Dante Alighieri, Galileo Galilei and Giacomo Puccini.
