CHIANTI & CASTELLO DI BROLIO
Day bike tour Tuscany, cycling trip Chianti
Meet in CASTELLINA in Chianti. This is the best route for the serious wine lovers. It wends through the vineyards, past abandoned and renovated farmhouses on the way to one of Tuscany's most renowned castles, BROLIO. This is the heart of the Ricasoli empire, family headquarters since 1067 and center of countless battles between FLORENCE and SIENA during the Middle Ages.
