Aromas of cherry, mixed berries and sweet spice. The palate is warm, soft and mouth-filling with rich tannins, balanced acidity, and a layered, complex finish.
The Castle, built before the XII century, is linked to the history of the Pazzi, a rich family of bankers during the Florentine Renaissance who, between the XII and XIV centuries, acquired ownership of all the land surrounding the castle, making it their stronghold. The historical “Pazzi Conspiracy” was hatched in these rooms. In fact, in an attempt to remove the hegemony of the Medici family, the most powerful family in Florence, and with the support of Pope Sisto IV, who was also interested in their fall for economic and political reasons, on April 26th 1478, Giuliano and his brother, Lorenzo de’ Medici, were attacked in Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral during Mass. The former was killed, while Lorenzo the Magnificent, although wounded, managed to save himself by taking refuge in the Sacristy of Masses. The ruinous epilogue of the story consolidated the power of the Medici family and sanctioned the end of the Pazzi’s authority.
In 1968, the Baj Macario family bought the Castle and the surrounding land, transforming a testimony of history into the flourishing winery and agritourism company that it is today. If it is true that people make the difference, Anna Baj Macario and her husband Stefano Casadei have certainly done so for Castello del Trebbio over the past thirty years. Their dreams have been transformed into projects that are now taking shape under the name of DCasadei, a company group which includes Castello del Trebbio, as well as the other group estates Casadei and Olianas, and which operates according to the principles of Biointegrale® sustainability.
Together they have been able to build an authentic, genuine reality, which, from the initial wine and olive production, has expanded its offer with the food line I Puri and the cosmetic line I Naturali.
