Osteria - your Wine Bar in Tuscany
A glass of wine, a bite of "Pecorino", a slice of "salame", the smiles of those eager to introduce you to the simple and genuine character of the people and the food for which Tuscany is known and loved: this is the Osteria.
Locanda dell'Amorosa's "Osteria" boasts a superb range of high quality products made in the area, to be savoured directly in the wine bar or purchased as gifts, thus allowing you to take back home with you not only the memories, but also the flavours, of Tuscany. Wines originating from some of Italy's most important wine areas: Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti Classico, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and, of course, the "Super Tuscans", are all well represented in the "Osteria", a taste of which might easily spur you to visit the wineries where they were produced.
The wines, but also the many varieties of Extra Virgin Olive Oil produced in Tuscany, even those made at a short distance from each another, can be surprisingly different in taste and aroma. Fresh Ricotta fresca, Pecorino cheeses, cured meats, honey and jams: a tiny "Osteria" brimming with products of international renown, a taste of what you can expect to find whilst exploring the hillside and valleys of Siena and Arezzo: the Val di Chiana, the Val d'Orcia, the Val d'Asso, the Val d'Arbia, to name but the most famous. The Osteria dell'Amorosa is all this and more.
The ancient cellars where the farmers used to bring in the grapes from the vineyards, have come back to life again. The walls may well hear the sounds of unfamiliar voices, new inflections and different languages, but, just like in the old days, they once again witness the opening of important bottles of wine and listen to the resounding praise of Tuscan buon vivere.
