On our last full day in Chianti we’ll head up to the tiny little hamlet of "Castellinuzza" close to Greve in Chianti. Our hosts, Simone and his family, raise Chianina Cows. These are the large white cows used for the “Bistecca Fiorentina”. Arguably considered the best beef steaks in Italy! They also have a wonderful boutique Chianti winery here, giving us our fourth winery of the week.
We will get together with the family today and it’s easy to understand how they have become fast friends! This will be a very private and immersive experience that is far away from any tourists or big guided tours! They will also be firing up their pizza oven for us!
For lunch today, we will have a freshly baked Tuscan specialty pizza bread called "Schiacciata". Of course, we'll also be having some Chianina beef, as well as a lot of additional seasonal local fare they’ll be preparing for us!
After lunch, we will head back to the hotel for a little rest before our final cooking class of the week, which will result in our farewell dinner.
