Castello della Paneretta Description

The Paneretta Castle is situated in the Chianti Classico area on the western slopes of the dominating hills of the Elsa valley, looking towards San Gimignano. It was built around an ancient sighting tower. The production of wine is documented from 1596, on. In 1696, Cassandra Capponi brought the castele, an important collection of codex's, parchments and books into her marriage with the Marchese carlo Riccardi Strozzi. This collection formed the nucleus of the Riccardian library in Florence. The Strozzi family remained owner of the castle until 1984, in this year, the family Albisetti took over. With its 309 hectares (majority wood) the Paneretta is one of the biggest farms of the area, producing 700 hectolitres of wine from 18 hectares of vineyards.
