Castello del Trebbio

Castello del Trebbio

One of the most beautiful castles in the Florentine countryside, it once belonged to the Pazzi family (the story goes that the plot against the Medici in 1478 was hatched here) and was a place where wise humanists used to meet. Since 1968 it has been the property of the Baj Macario family.

They are responsible for restoring the Castle of Trebbio and developing a flourishing production of wine that includes several important denominations of origin wines DOCG. Today the estate covers an area of about 350 hectares, 56 of which are planted with vineyards. The overall production of wine is about 2.600 hectoliters a year. In terms of bottles, the largest part is the Chianti Docg (Sangiovese and Cannaiolo grapes, 200 thousand bottles), followed by the Chianti Rufina (Sangiovese, 30 thousand bottles) and then by the two Super Tuscan IGT Pazzeso ( Merlot and Syrah)  and dei Pazzi ( Sangiovese, Merlot, and Syrah).

The best in the range is the Chianti Rufina Riserva Lastricato produced only with selected Sangiovese grapes from the high-density planted Parga vineyard. Fermentation takes place in 100 hl steel stainless thanks and after the malolactic process in wood, the wine is transferred to the barriques in the centuries-old cellar of the castle where it stays for 14 months before being placed in the traditional 20 hl big oak casks for further 20 months. Afterward, it is blended and only then, after a delicate filtering, is it placed into the bottle. 

Apart from the wine, the farm produces extra virgin olive oil Igp and saffron from Florentine hills. 

The Castello del Trebbio farm is run today by Anna Baj Macario, in charge of the marketing and production of the olive oil, Alberto Baj Macario, in charge of the financial kinds of stuff and Stefano Casadei for the wine farming and production.
