Castelo di Brolio
Belonging to Ricasoli family Brolio Castle dates back to the Middle Ages. It has suffered countless attacks throughout the ages due to its strategic position.

A castle with so much history is bound to have a bit of mistery and magic surrounding it. From ages the castle has belonged to one family with ancestors’ graves piling up in a family crypt. However, once you do the math it looks like either some graves are missing here or some members of the Ricasoli family have been alive more than the should be..
