Seven day tour of six of the worlds finest wines

 Seven day tour of six of the worlds finest wines

Wine Spectator is the most highly esteemed international ranking system for wine, and we are proud of the recognition that it gives to our vineyards.

Here is the Seven day tour of six of the worlds finest wines list with us!

This year, like last year, sixteen Italian wines are among the top 100 wines worldwide according to Wine Spectator. Seven of them are from our Tuscany.

At our organic farm in il Fontanaro you can familiarize yourself with some of these gems. I’m crazy for most of the wines listed, but the Nobile di Montepulciano 2010 from Avignonesi is a favorite, a wine that we love to introduce at our wine tastings.

The Avignonesi Nobile di Montepulciano 2010 was ranked fifty-eight this year, a well deserved recognition. It will be our star of the year.

In the coming season we will explore the top Tuscany wines, with daily tours to the many vineyards that surround us.

We invite you to spend seven days with us here in Tuscany, touring seven of the best wines of 2013.

Seven day tour of six of the worlds finest wines. As an ideal schedule we propose the following:

Day one and two : visit two vineyards of Montalcino, the Montosoli and the Altesino.
Day three: Chianti Classico at Poggerino at Radda in Chianti.
Day four: Nobile di Montepulciano by Avignonesi.
