The Castello di Brolio, Gaiole in Chianti, Tuscany - The New Castle

The castle is located in the southern Chianti Classico countryside and has been there for over ten centuries, and owned by the Ricasoli family since 1141.

The newer part of the castle dates from the 1800's .  The larger brick palace was built in Gothic revival-style.

The new castle was built on top of the old castle's ramparts

The walkway leads to the guards tower, and views over the countryside, and in particular, the styled gardens of English origin

And beyond these gardens, the vineyards
