The Best in Town: Restaurant ‘ I Tre Bicchieri ‘ – Arezzo

In Restaurant in Tuscany on January 28, 2010 at 3:29 pm

This place was a popular hunting and fishing store. Now has become a good quality restaurant.
Seemingly seem to be two different activities, but both serve to make our palates joyful , and the owners, Stephen and Leonello, achieve their goal.


The concept is simple and elegant as the menu. Say goodbye to the typical tourist kitchen of the historical centers.

‘I 3 Bicchieri’ is the excellent result of the combination of the raw material of the place and the creativity of the chef, while keeping intact all the flavors.
The menu is perfect  with four different types of appetizers to start, including the ‘Cetica potato’, cooked in its skin, open and covered with local cheese fondue and porcini mushrooms.
The ‘Tartara od Chianina’ is wonderful. It is finely chopped and served with diced tomatoes, dried anchovies and foie gras. Or the enchanting ‘Cod in Tempura’, brought with a small ‘Caponata of Eggplant’.
The ‘pasta’ is hand made. Regarding the second courses, we recommed:
– the duck breast, seasoned and cooked in pan, sliced and presented with the fois gras and potatoes.
– the lamb chops with pistachios, cooked few minutes in the oven made with mashed potatoes and spinach.
– the tuna presented on a bed of bacon rolled and potatoes.
Particular attention should be devoted to the wine menu, consisting of more than 100 labels. Stefano is very ‘strong’ about wine. He always chooses the right one.
Lionello, the founder and heart of the kitchen is the perfect ‘Oste’. He speaks through his dishes. Now we can glimpse him through the smile of the daughter, who works in the hall of the restaurant.
For lunch you can opt for a lighter menu.

The Tuscan’s ‘Winetrain’: from Siena to Montalcino

In Restaurant in Tuscany, Wine on January 25, 2010 at 9:08 pm

Do you like train and wine? This is your perfect journey!

Every weekend on the railroad that connects Siena to Montalcino runs a very particular train: the winetrain.

The train, with two comfortable passenger carriages and one set up for wine tasting and gourmet products from Tuscany, travel from Siena station to Torrenieri – Montalcino through one of the most fascinating paths of Italy. In the green heart of Val d’Orcia, an exclusive trip between ancient tastes and enchanting landscapes. On board a Tuscan wine tasting will be served together with typical Val d’Orcia sweets.

With the Wine Train you will discover the hidden corners of the green heart of Tuscany, through the Val d’Orcia up the slopes of Monte Amiata. Arrived at a small station immersed in the green, a route from the incomparable landscape climbs up to the Abbey of Sant’ Antimo. Free visit to the wonderful work in the Romanesque style. Lunch in a historic winery, surrounded by woods and vineyards, consisting of a typical main course and of a local salami and cheese selection and tasting of the great wines of the territory. Hence the station Torrenieri-Montalcino with a visit to the coach-tasting, the coach-store and basement of Roberto Cipresso, for a fascinating journey from vine to the wine of the future.

Travel becomes banquet, serenity, style and ‘slow tourism’.

One hundred and fifty passengers can enjoy a day of art and taste, pleasure and nature; the departure is scheduled every Saturday and Sunday from Siena train station (which is about an hour from Florence) to reach Montalcino.

Departure at 10.00 and return at 19.00
