Once two castles housed by the sea in the province of La Spezia (it. La Spezia), in one of the bays of the romantic Gulf of Poets (it. Golfo dei Poeti).
The first castle was built in the 12th century, meanwhile the second one was built in the beginning of the 15th century.
The castle of the 12th century takes a dominating position on the rocky cape which embraces the bay from the South side. On the open terrace of the castle civil and symbolic wedding ceremonies and wedding banquets are carried out.
The first accounts relating to the Castle date back to the eleventh century, at that time it was a property of the Benedictine monks. Subsequently it became the property of a local feudal family, then passed to the Ricasoli family.
Now the Castle is a property of the joint-stock company Viticola Toscana established in 1968. An important agricultural transformation takes place between 1968 and 1972, when the Viticola Toscana implants 180 hectares of vineyards, then a large wine making cellar was built and production of the Chianti Classico DOCG wine was begun.
The farmsteads have been renovated and those located near the Castle have been turned into farmhouses (agriturismo).
