“Excellent food, incredible cellar”
Review of Drogheria Franci

Drogheria Franci
Ranked #12 of 76 Restaurants in Montalcino
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Italian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 June 2014

The Drogheria Franci is not only the perfect place for a light meal (their reasonably priced dishes are perfect for those looking for something less heavy that what most in the rest of the region serve) but all their staff are extremely knowledgeable about wines, and their cellar boasts an incredible selection of the fantastic wines of Montalcino. You would be hard pushed to find a name that they do not stock.
Service always with a smile, and there is a beautiful terrace on which to enjoy the Tuscan sun!

We drove from Florence into the hills of Montalcino. Amongst a whole host of enotecas open on our walk up to the Fortezza at the summit, Franci stood out with a lively view of the fort and the valley beyond.
What was surprising was the quality of the food and it's presentation. The Panzanella d'orzo was delicious as was the Pork belly.
We were fortunate to have a lovely and knowledgeable waitress by the name of Gioiella who introduced us to three of the almost 240 wineries that make Brunello de Montalcino: Tassi, Fortezza, and Casanova de neri. I have not enjoyed a Rosso di Montalcino as much as I enjoyed the Tassi 2011. The Casanova Brunello was as big and lush as it's 100 Wine Spectator rating indicated.
Gioiella also called a winery to book a tour for us; we rushed out as she only gave us 15 minutes to get there and to my chagrin, I forgot to tip her! I hope she reads this and forgives me!
A really wonderful experience in the altogether charming town of Montalcino.
