Castello di Volpaia is located in an 11th century village that bears the same name. It sits on a hilltop just north of the town of Radda in Chianti, 2,024 feet above sea level, in the heart of the Chianti Classico region. One of the most historical wineries of the region, Volpaia is owned by the Mascheroni-Stianti family and benefits from some of the highest altitude southern exposure vineyards of the area, delivering certified organic Sangiovese-based wines of finesse and elegance with a terroir approach.

In the Tuscan dialect, Citto means young boy. Citto is made from a selection of the best grapes from the winery’s IGT vineyards in the Chianti Classico (Sangiovese) and Maremma areas (Cabernet Sauvignon). The label features the “Planetary Clock”, built by Lorenzo Della Volpaia in 1510 for Lorenzo De’ Medici. It “tracks the positions of the planets relative to the Earth, in order to determine astrological influences over arts, sciences and agriculture.“
