mposing and elegant, Castello di Montepò is a fortified structure that has stood watch over the northern slopes of the countryside of Scansano, in the province of Grosseto, for over ten centuries. Built around an ancient parish church, the castle was largely rebuilt during the 14th century, undergoing further extensions in the Renaissance period. A perfect example of the Sienese ancient manor of the time, with a rectangular plan arranged around an inner courtyard, flanked by four square-section corner towers joined by sturdy stone walls. The terracotta roofs that surmount the four towers, with their diamond-shape contours, give the castle its striking appearance even from a distance. Today the castle is the favourite residence of Jacopo Biondi Santi’s family, who live here throughout the year and especially during harvest-time and the hunting season, a particularly loved pastime enjoyed by the Biondi Santi men. The Castle is also a point of reference for wine-lovers, attracting many visitors each year to explore its beautiful cellars and taste Castello di Montepò’s wines.
