Castiglion del Bosco extends over 4,450 acres, with 153 acres of them dedicated to vineyards. It is one of the most prominent producers in Montalcino, both for the history of the estate and for its size, unchanged in the last 400 years. In 2003, Massimo Ferragamo fell in love with the sloping vineyard and purchased the property with aspirations to renovate it. Today, the castle’s ruins act as a backdrop to the Tuscan winery’s sheer beauty and world-class accommodations, comprising of 23 guest suites, and an 18-hole private golf course.

The fermentation process is carried out in Castiglion del Bosco’s cellar, using gravity to transfer the grapes into 60 to 100 quintal tanks. Natural fermentation at controlled temperature maintains the aromas in the wine, yielding the space needed by the native yeast to add character. For bolder grapes, very long maceration times are applied, which soften and lend elegance.The wine is moved into French oak casks and barriques in a controlled-temperature semi-underground area for 24 to 36 months depending on the wine. The aging process continues with bottle refinement for 6 to 36 months before release to market. Depending on the wine, bottle refinement may be preceded by time spent in concrete tanks.

Castiglion del Bosco also offers a handful of remarkable accommodations and buildings in an unparalleled environment of Tuscan culture and beauty. Massimo Ferragamo restored the medieval borgo which now hosts a 5-star hotel beside the Campo del Drago and Osteria la Canonica restaurants. The latter is home to La Canonica Cooking School, for those guests who love great food matched with Tuscan culinary tradition. The Castiglion del Bosco Golf Club, set on over 520 acres of rolling hills, was designed by British Open champion Tom Weiskopf, one of the most renowned figures in the golf world.
