Castello di Albola is located in Tuscany, one of the most renowned Italian regions for its rich history, tradition, art, culture and unforgettable landscapes. In addition to having been the cradle of Italian literature and the Renaissance, the land in this region is renowned around the world for its very ancient oenological history, documented as early as the 8th century B.C. in Etruscan times, from which some of the most celebrated Italian wines in the world are born: this territory has 42 DOC wines and 11 DOCG wines, spread throughout the region.

The historic Chianti Classico area, whose symbol is the Black Rooster, stretches between Florence and Siena, in an area that includes three municipalities: Radda in Chianti, Castellina in Chianti and Gaiole in Chianti. This is the land that Cosimo de Medici recognized as the production area for the best wine in Tuscany, in 1716. In particular, Castello di Albola is located in Radda in Chianti, a splendid medieval village surrounded by characteristic walls, in the heart of the Chianti Classico production area.
