  • Chianti
    Nothing is better than a glass of Chianti, crisp and fresh, perfect for pairing with the savory Florentine food. Among all the Tuscan red wines, it's the one that is meant to be drunk younger and not aged for long. In general, Chianti Classicos are described as medium-bodied wines with firm, dry tannins. The characteristic aroma is cherry but it can also carry nutty and floral notes as well.
  • Morellino di Scansano
    The wines are dry reds from the Sangiovese grape variety, known here as Morellino. They're produced in the rolling coastal hills around the medieval village of Scansano. Scansano's viticultural origins date back to Etruscan times, and the quality of the local wines has been documented for centuries. This style of Sangiovese differs from its northern brethren due to the ripeness levels it can achieve in southern Tuscany. The result is a rounder and more savory style of wine.
  • Vin Santo
    Vin Santo is sweet dessert wine made in Italy, predominantly in Tuscany. When paired with biscotti, Vin Santo becomes "Cantucci e Vin Santo" which is inarguably Italy's most famous welcoming tradition. What makes Vin Santo truly special is the natural winemaking process which gives it a unique taste. Grapes are laid out on mats, or hung in the rafters of the winery, to dry for many months. It is a long and slow fermentation that can rise and fall with the seasons and take up to 4 years to complete. The Vin Santo barrels are special in that over time they will develop their own yeast "mother".

WHY SANTA CROCE AND SANT'AMBROGIO?

hese two districts are the only ones where you can still find the real Florentine people. Away from the museums and crowds, you'll find a moment to relax, experience a still thriving atmosphere, and meet local people in their shops.

Santa Croce Basilica is one of the most important monuments for the history of both Florence and Italy. Also known as "the Temple of the Italian Glories", it's a must-see, and the perfect meeting point from where we start our great food tour. Walking through the streets, you'll understand how important this district has always been, from its time as the leather district, which has made a fortune for many Florentine families since 12th century, to becoming the symbol of Italy as a unified country.

After this, we continue into Sant'Ambrogio Market, which is the city's food market, full of locals buying and talking in their own colourful way. You'll try some of the freshest foods Florence has to offer, and meet the proud locals who love their city and their culture. Eat and drink as the Florentines do.
