It's a pretty drive up winding and curving roads to this 13th-century fortress. Attached is an 18th-century villa; more importantly, there's a wineshop that serves tastes of the locally produced wine as well as honeys and jams. It's worth touring the castle if you want to get a sense of how 18th-century aristocrats lived; if that doesn't interest you, proceed directly to the enoteca for a tasting. Six apartments clustered near the castle are available for rent.
