Food & Wine in a Tuscan Farmhouse: the Other Side of Wellbeing
In the restaurant “La Castagneta”, inside the Antico Casale, you will taste the typical and traditional Tuscan cuisine, revisited by our chef Claudio Bovicelli.
Every dish combines creativeness and respect of tradition, starting from the choice and processing of typical products, to the arrangement of the dishes and their presentation to our guests. Every single dish is skilfully matched to the right wine, in a homely atmosphere, sitting beside the fireplace or on the veranda, admiring the romantic view out onto the town of Scansano and the gentle slopes of the Maremma plain.
The Traditional Menu of Tuscan Maremma
Our APPETISERS, which come from the traditional poor and rural Tuscan cuisine, are toasted bread (bruschetta), with cherry tomatoes, garlic, mushrooms from our region or in-season vegetables, dressed with our special extra virgin olive oil, characterized by its sharp and aromatic taste, or the well-known Tuscan Croutons.
Our home made PASTA, tagliatelle, tagliolini, gnocchi, tortelli, brigoli and pappardelle, our typical soups made of different kinds of mushrooms, or our Mediterranean vegetable soups, with chickpeas and beans, the famous Acquacotta (Cooked water) and our special Zuppa del Casale (Farmhouse Soup), are only some of the typical starters of our region.
Our SECOND COURSES are grilled meat served on the griddle and rich and nifty dishes made of Wild Boar, the Cinto Toscano and the Chianina, all coming from our traditional Tuscan cuisine.?
Finally, our DESSERTS are rigorously home made, created by our chef’s imagination: our Panna Cotta (a kind of cream caramel) with mixed berries and the typical tozzetti (a kind of biscuit) served with vin santo (holy wine).
