En route to Florence, enjoy a relaxing drive through Lazio and the Tuscan countryside. On your arrival at the Verazzano Castle you will be welcomed with the kindness and genuineness that characterize those who have been used to receiving and giving refreshment to wayfarers and pilgrims for centuries, and with the same kindness you will be accompanied into what might almost religiously be defined as a temple of the cult of wine in all its forms. The castle is perched on a mountain spur high above the non-navigable River Greve. It is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, and its crenellated medieval tower is just visible above a cluster of cypresses.
Enter the castle's courtyard and admire the magnificent garden and the reserve of "verri", the wild boars from which the place took its name in ancient times. You will then reach a marvelous terrace overlooking the castle's vineyards and estate. Visiting the winery, surrounded by the scents of fine oak barrels, one enters into the heart of the castle, where selections of the best vintages since 1924 are kept.
You will have a chance to admire the personal cellars of the owner of the castle and the cured meats, which, as taught by the makers, have always been the ideal accompaniment to a good wine and help to create the atmospheric flavors that can be breathed in this castle.
Finally, having become acquainted with the whole range of genuine products of superlative quality, all produced by the Verrazzano farm, you will move on to the large hall where, gathered around the fireplace , you will sample the best wines and oils produced on this estate.
You will have a chance to sample four wines: Verrazzano Rosso IGT - Chianti Classico DOCG - Chianti Classico DOCG reserve - Supertuscan: special bottle, and tasting of oil and balsamic vinegar of their own production.
After lunch you may drive on to your Florence destination.
