Toscana (Grape: 90% Sangiovese 10% Canaiolo)THE HISTORY Castello di San Sano This castle of Chianti take its name from the martyr Ansano and its origins date back to the 13th century when this fortified settlement was probably used as a stronghold during the conflict between Siena and Florence as their battles for territory continued. As well as other hamlets, the Castello di San Sano was eventually converted into a mansion. Today San Sano castle is surrounded by approximately 85 acres of sun-drenched vineyards and is certainly a recognised centre of excellence for Chianti wine.
