Are you ready for a walk in the Chianti country? The first stop we recommend is Enoteca Bonatti (Via Vincenzo Gioberti 68, 055 660050), a point of reference for the Florentines themselves, characterized by great competence and desire to meet the needs of the customers, always offering customized solutions. Excellent wines at a competitive price, choose the perfect souvenir.
Experience your Florence wine tastings, feel like you’re inside a Fellini’s movie, at the Casa del Vino (Ariento 16 / r | Behind the Bancarelli, 055 215609, closed on Sundays), where the setting will bring you in direct contact with the authentic Florentine spirit. Take a sandwich and ask for a good glass of “red” and a Tuscan cheese! Sometimes among the tables there is also a “storyteller”…
The Divina Enoteca (Via Panicale 19 / R, 055 292723) is an almost obligatory stop revealing something more about the regional specialties. The owners know how to meet the guests’ expectations with suggestions for purchases, with strong passion (you can also eat one of their delicious “taglieri” with finger foods!).
After some wine tastings in the evening it's time for dinner, obviously in the name of Chianti wine! Get a table at Piazza del Vino (Via della Torretta 18r | Crossing Via Campo d'Arrigo, 055 671404), enjoy a pleasant menu (also open for lunch on Saturday and Sunday) and order a "peposo" (or a vegetable’s flan) served with superb bottles in a minimalist industrial context.
Get your occasion for a day trip from Florence, we suggest you to join a group guided walking tour in the surrounding countryside, starting from the Chianti Colle Bereto, near Radda in Chianti (Colle Bereto, Radda In Chianti, 0577 738083, closed Saturday and Sunday), it’s to underline their "green harvest”, a sustainable procedure used to exploit exclusively the best bunches of each plant.
If you have the opportunity to rent a car in Florence, head to Montalcino, at Paradiso di Frassina (Localita Podere Frassina 41, 0577 839031), here the vines grow and develop “hearing” the notes of Mozart, reproduced on the hills by speakers: a mystical journey at the court of Avv. Carlo Cignozzi (musician and composer), savoring an outstanding Brunello ("The Magic Flute") and other exceptional productions (try the 12 grapes!).
Make your dreams come true and unveil the most fascinating Florence.
