The Castello di Volpaia was built in the 11th century as a fortified village on the Florence/Siena border. Although only part of the original protective walls and two of its six towers are still standing, the medieval layout and buildings within the village are still intact, making Volpaia undoubtedly one of the best preserved villages of its period.

Balifico

Balifico is named after the homonymous vineyard located at 1.350 feet a.s.l., between the celebrated vineyards of Coltassala and Casanova. A blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet, it's one of the first Supertuscans acclaimed by the international press.
