As we walked up to Gattavecchi I was pleasantly surprised. It had the most charming patio with the most spectacular views of the Tuscany landscape. Before lunch we thought we’d take a look through their wine cellars, which is beneath the restaurant and the church next door.
After this we were ready for our lunch. We decided on one of their Menu Riserva meal experiances (which came with several courses paired with wine). We had no idea that we we're about to have one of our favorite dining experiences in Italy. Our first couple courses began with bread (olive oil), and the "Lillians Fantasy" which was Assorted Bruschetta and Salami meats. This was SO delicious!! Best thing of the trip. The bruschetta was actual a tray of numerous different bruschettas, some with cheese, others with tomatos, some with re pepper, some with spinach, and all using Tuscany spices. It even came with chicken patte, which we all decided was pretty amazing too. (I'm converted!!) After this for our third course we had the incredible pasta from this region, Picci. Think fat spaghetti. But like nothing like we’ve ever had in the US. Our fourth course was, Roast Pork “alla Poliziana” with Almond Puree with Roast Potatoes. (This was similar to one we had in Chianti, but this was even better!!) Each of these were paired with wines from here Rosso di Montepulciano Gattavecchi DOC, Nobile di Montepulciano Gattavecchi, DOCG Nobile Riserva Gattavecchi DOCG The last course was Cantucci biscuit paired with Vin Santo di Montepulciano Gattavecchi DOC
Definitely MUST stop here!!
