Tuscan cuisine is an ancient and knowledgeable form of cooking, created with tasty ingredients which are never excessively elaborated: each dish is created from well-balanced amounts and characterised by the patient care of the choice and the mixing together of the ingredients.
Besides the wine, this Tuscan centre also presents praiseworthy and qualified productions of honey, extra virgin olive oil, typical cured meats and cheeses which can be tasted in one of the characteristic restaurants and wine bars.
We can find the Ristorante di Poggio Antico in the hamlet of Poggi, which offers a menu of regional dishes that are carefully prepared and continually updated according to seasonal availability. The restaurant is sober and elegant whilst at the same time enjoying a fantastic view over the surrounding countryside.
We can abandon ourselves to a warm welcome and excellent service in Poggio alle Mura in the Castello Banfi restaurant, with its elegant and refined tones. It offers a refined menu with dishes both from the sea and the land.
Tradition marries with innovation at the Alle logge di Piazza Wine bar, in the centre of Montalcino in Piazza del Popolo. It offers its guests wines, cheeses, cured meats and desserts that are representative of the area.
