Il Borro – lunch and wine-tasting on chic wine estate

  • Il Borro – lunch and wine-tasting on chic wine estate

    Set in the hills 20km from Arezzo, Il Borro is part of a patchwork of cypresses, sunflowers, olive groves and vineyards that inspired Leonardo da Vinci. More prosaically, Il Borro is in the middle of nowhere in the Arno Valley, a place of ancient forests, rolling hills and clear streams. Come for a wine-tasting and lunch on this chic estate owned by the Ferragamo fashion dynasty. The setting often features in fashion shoots but the Ferragamo family are serious restaurateurs and wine producers. According to Salvatore Ferragamo, “The wines are trail-blazing Super-Tuscans rather than traditional Chianti Classico.” Dine in L’Osteria Il Borro, the gourmet restaurant, with a completely open kitchen overlooking the countryside. On the menu are rabbit, snails and scallops, plus pasta with lamb ragout, spinach and ricotta. Beneath it is the Tuscan Bistro, for informal meals, or Il Vincafe, set in a converted carpenter’s workshop, for a light tasting menu of cold cuts, carpaccio and salads.

    Address: Località Borro 52, Loro Ciuffenna, Provincia di Arezzo

Pisa and Lucca PRIVATE TOUR from Siena

- No trip to Italy is complete without a visit to Pisa, home of Galileo Galilei and the Leaning Tower. The grandeur of this ancient, Maritime Republic is reflected in the Square of Miracles, where the tower is enveloped by the Cathedral, Baptistry and Monumental Cemetery. A climb to the top of the tower confirms the surrounding splendor.
- Discover Lucca, originally Etruscan, turned Roman colony in 180 B. C. The wealth of its history can still be found in a visit to the ruins of its Roman Amphitheater, the Guinigi Tower and a walk on the walls that once protected it from outside invasion. An enemy to Florence until 1328 and temporary site of exile to Dante, this charming town provides an enchanting backdrop to a meal, a walk and certain adventure.
