La Braccesca and Montepulciano

Beth Ribblett

We had a great day visiting one of the Antinori family properties located about 15 miles outside of Cortona. While Antinori is a huge producer, La Bracessca is a small estate that has a unique geographical position in that it sits right on the border of the Vino Nobile DOCG and the Cortona DOC.

After a wonderful tour of the facility by Francesca, we were treated to lunch of local foods paired with their wines. They have a beautiful room with huge windows that overlook the surrounding vineyards.

The views were spectacular and it was a real treat to taste both the Montepulciano and Cortona wines.

The pasta course...

And the bistecca hot off the grill...

Followed by a fabulous panna cotta and a delicious Aleatico dessert wine...
