Bask in the Italian Sun at COMO Castello del Nero in Tuscany, Italy
COMO Castello Del Nero, Tuscany, is an exceptional 740-acre, historic estate in the world-famous Chianti wine region of Italy.
At the property’s heart stands a twelfth-century castle featuring 50 rooms and suites with new interiors by Milanese designer, Paola Navone. Working with Navone, COMO Hotels and Resorts have softly adjusted the spa and culinary offerings to create a serene, contemporary retreat that makes you feel at home, with precise service, therapeutic wellness experiences, and exceptional, carefully sourced food.
While the Castello’s historic terracotta flooring, fresco walls and vaulted ceilings remain untouched, Navone has introduced a lighter, more modern ‘COMO’ aesthetic, to complement and enhance the period bones of the castello without losing any of the deeply authentic historic texture.
The Michelin-starred La Torre restaurant is located in the original stables of the castle in the winter, transferring to the garden terrace in summer. All menus are overseen by Executive Chef, Giovanni Luca Di Pirro. Consistent to the COMO philosophy of only using the finest produce, La Torre is no exception. Menus showcase gourmet Italian cuisine, using the finest Tuscan produce, much from the estate’s kitchen-garden. The estate has its own vineyard, bee hives and olive groves. COMO’s approach to the provenance of ingredients remains critical to the brand’s founding philosophy. Here in Italy, it is literally ‘farm to table’, with the garden carefully overseen by Di Pirro.
COMO Castello Del Nero also features two informal restaurants: La Taverna and during the summer months, the Pavilion, where families will feel as relaxed and welcome as they are in all COMO properties worldwide. The Pavilion offers Mediterranean-inspired cuisine and COMO signature dishes, while traditional Italian dishes, including many Tuscan favourites, feature on the menu at La Taverna. The wine cellar’s architecture might date back to the twelfth century, but the hotel’s COMO mixologists are ready to give every drink a modern twist, from Martinis to Prosecco cocktails.
