H3> You are surrounded by history
The Chianti region has many quaint villages filled with history, and Montegonzi is no exception. The city has a history dating back to the Middle Ages, and Castello di Montegonzi was almost destroyed in 1629 in a twist between the families Ghibellini and Guelfi. The new owner has carefully restored the beautiful stone houses and recycled the old stones from the original houses. Anything to preserve the scenic and beautiful atmosphere that is present here on the hill.
