A sublime mix of gourmet cuisine and fine local wines
Tipple of choice: The Antoniri family has been producing wine for over six centuries (and more than 26 generations) so there’s nowhere better to enjoy a nice Chianti.
A traditional Tuscan restaurant housed in the 14th century Antinori Mansion, Cantinetta Antinori is renowned for its rustic decor and ambience, its attentive service and - as it is run by a local vino-producing family - its extensive range of truly exceptional wines.
Then, of course, there’s the food. They specialise in regional gastronomic delights with homemade gourmet dishes such as Florentine pasta with wild boar ragu or sliced Tuscan beef with pecorino cheese. Finish off the meal with the local chestnut-flour cake with ricotta cheese.
