The Taverna dei Barbi
Taverna dei Barbi
Already fifty years ago there were a great many visitors
to the Fattoria dei Barbi, and many of them asked
to be able to accompany their tasting of Brunello
with a taste of cured meats and cheeses,
maybe even with some roasts typical of the area
or a plate of hand-rolled pinci.
Thus the Taverna was created, where visitors could rest
after a tour of the cellars and taste
the dishes characteristic of Montalcino.
After more than half a century, the same custom is still being practiced at Taverna dei Barbi: on the tables outside or in front of the big fireplace at the heart of the dining room, dishes in the Tuscan and, specifically, Montalcino tradition can be tasted just as they were prepared long ago and even with a slightly modern touch.
Homemade pasta, sauces, soups, bistecca Fiorentina [Tuscany’s porterhouse steak] and others spacial meats accompanied by Fattoria dei Barbi wines enable visitors to live a unique experience and to enjoy the luxury of Tuscan simplicity, surrounded by the countryside and vineyards, in a rustic but elegant atmosphere.
Taverna dei Barbi’s chef is Duccio Lorenzini and Taverna dei Barbi is open to the public every day at lunch and dinner, except Wednesdays:
