The origins of Brolio Castle date back to medieval times, when it became the property of the Ricasoli family through a documented land exchange in 1141. Over the centuries, the castle was subjected to assaults and destructions in various historical battles, including the Aragonese attacks and Spanish in the fifteenth century and the disputes of the seventeenth century, up to the damage caused by bombing during the Second World War.
Today, the castle has been rebuilt and modified several times, showing signs of the different eras, from medieval fortifications to Romanesque and neo-Gothic contributions, up to the characteristics of the Tuscan nineteenth century.
Located in a landscape of rolling hills, lush valleys and dense woods of oak and chestnut trees, Castello di Brolio is the center of the properties of the Ricasoli company, the largest in the Chianti Classico area. The estate covers a total of 1,200 hectares, of which 240 are dedicated to vineyards and 26 to olive groves, in the municipality of Gaiole in Chianti.
