Overall Property Description:
Like a fairytale, Meleto Castle announces itself in the enchanting Chianti landscape at the end of a pleasant driveway lined with cypresses and junipers, amid sun-kissed fields and vineyards.
The apartments we offer are all located in the buildings around the castle; the property also offers some bedrooms with private bathroom (not currently listed on our page - 4 in the castle, 5 in the canonica), available on request in case clients need extra space.
A dreamlike place no longer exclusive to the Tuscan aristocracy but also open to you.
The land of the Castle of Meleto stretches round the castle for about 1.000 hectares (2.471.000 acres), 180 of which are destined to the cultivation of the grapevine. The prevailing grapes are Sangiovese, destined to the production of Chianti Classico wine, together with Merlot, Cabernet, Syrah and other traditional types of vine.
