  • Overlooking the town of Radda, Castello di Volpaia, an 11th century fortified village located on some of the region's highest elevations and still pretty much intact, is home to its namesake winery. Under current ownership, Volpaia began organic farming in the 1990's and all of its wines have been certified organic since 2004. Their Riserva bottling is 100% cask-aged Sangiovese.
