Spumante Brut Rosè with tagliolini tartufo Donatella Cinelli Colombini

A choice between 3 weekends in Tuscany dedicated to white truffles in one of the most renowned areas of Italy, the Crete Senesi where the precious “trifola” has excellent characteristics and a sensual scent.

 

The proposal comes from Fattoria del Colle in the Orcia Doc wine region and from Casato Prime Donne in the Brunello area. These are the two cellars where Donatella Cinelli Colombini produces small quantities of super-awarded premium wines. In addition to the cellars, on the Fattoria del Colle estate there are also apartments, rooms, a restaurant, parks, a cooking school and an area for natural well-being (especially wine bath and room for couples’ massages…). A small, ancient and intact hamlet with villa and chapel, where tourists feel at home as if with their “Tuscan grandparents”

WHITE TRUFFLE HUNTING IN THE WOODS

The farm has 5 truffle reserves, uncontaminated and protected places where even smoking is prohibited. The truffle hunter Patrizio and his dogs accompany visitors into the woods and let them experience the hunt for the legendary Tuber magnatum. You need boots and a windbreaker to move among the trees and fully enjoy the direct relationship with nature, together with a true enthusiast who explains the secrets of trees and wild animals such as hares, pheasants and squirrels. It is important to remember that since 2021 the activity of truffle hunters is a UNESCO world heritage site and therefore participating in the hunt is a cultural experience and not just fun.

 

In the kitchen, chef Doriana prepares delicious dishes with freshly picked truffles and Sommelier Alfredo helps to pair these with the wines that enhance them. The environment is refined but informal and allows you to enjoy ancient local dishes such as “condito”, “pinci” with garlic sauce, “pappardelle” with wild boar sauce… Or the Chianina ox steak which is native to this area, together with small creations that renew tradition such as ravioli on saffron potato cream with Jerusalem artichoke.

 

 

 

GREAT EXPERIENCES WITH BRUNELLO, CHIANTI SUPERIORE, SUPERTUSCAN AND DOC ORCIA WINES

The weekend can be short – just one night – or long from Friday to Sunday. The experience will still be exciting even if less rich because arriving on Friday it is possible to taste the newly born extra virgin olive oil and understand the differences between the cultivars and the vintages. Above all, it is possible to take part in the guided tour of the Casato Prime Donne winery in Montalcino where the barrels in which Brunello matures are interspersed with images of the noble history of Montalcino and the fermentation room  hosts a performance of images and sounds regarding the proud people of Brunello.
