Wines

Somebody might call me “the sourest girl in Chiantiland”, because I worked for a vinegar factory for a long time... but I didn’t get sour, I only improved my knowledge of something which is really close to wine! In the past I also worked in vineyards: from the harvest of vines to the production of wine. My passion for wines probably started at that time, and now that I have got my own wine bar I can put my experience to good use. My wine list shows my special choices, including wines from different areas of Tuscany, with obviously an eye to “Chianti classico” wine.
I know all the wine producers (and their wine-making methods) personally.

CASTELLO DI BROLIO

_ Mr. Ferrini is the oenologist who makes a traditional wine, though a very round one, which always suits my customers’ taste.

PRUNETO

_ Riccardo is a lifelong friend, and a crazy vine-dresser, whose expert hands can both make a good product and respect Chianti typology.

QUERCIABELLA

_ Dales the agronomist follows the biodynamic method, which made me appreciate his product even more.

ANTICO BORGO DI SUGAME

_ A Geonese in Chiantiland! A kind of wine I really like, made in one of the highest places in Chiantiland.

GIOIA

_ LMy friend Gioia is a great oenologist and she makes a woman’s wine: a great wine, as “only” women can do!

MONTEMAGGIO

_ Ilaria is the agronomist who runs her wine factory with the energy of a man. A great wine with intense flavours.

VAL DELLE CORTI

_ Roberto is a farmer and in his small wine factory he only produces Chianti and Chianti riserva.

VILLA SANT’ANNA

_ A women-run wine factory (and what women!) A great noble wine, with the typical fruity notes of this vine.

SAN DONATINO

_ Leo Ferré had once bought this wine factory, which is run today by his wife, his son and his daughter-in-law.

CASTELLO D’ALBOLA

_ My hill-neighbours. They make traditional Chianti in their amazing estate.
