Taken on a tour of the winery by a very pleasant young lady called Virginia who was very passionate and knowledgeable about the production of all the wines, her enthusiasm made the tour very enjoyable; we had tasting sessions afterwards which were informative and enjoyable.

Visited the winery after the castle & gardens. The staff were very engaging and friendly. We tasted three wines. The Brolio Chianti Classico Reserva 2014 was my favourite.
