Chianti Vineyards: Day 3
Eroica North Routes
We are in the Chianti area, it’s a change of views, but with equal satisfaction in riding these dirt roads made famous by the vintage bike event Eroica in Gaiole, a long ride on the ridge of the Chiantishire hills.
The route passes through the villages which names you can read on the labels of the best bottles of Chianti wine: Panzano in Chianti, Fonterutoli, Radda in Chianti, Gaiole in Chianti (only to name a few).
When darkness is coming: Osteria le Logge – Siena
After visiting the city of Siena, we have dinner in one city’s most beautiful trattorias, in a stone’s throw from Piazza del Campo.
Let’s start from the end: a must is the visit of the cellar, a few meters from the restaurant: four floors in the basement of the Jewish ghetto in the historic center of the city of Siena. First, however, we enjoy the warm atmosphere and an elegant, territorial cuisine made of high-quality raw materials. Well-stocked cellar (we will show you it) with a tasting of the KING of Tuscan red wines: Chianti “Gallo Nero”.
Signature dishes: Fettuccine with Maremma cow sauce – Cheek braised in Chianti
