TASTE OF MAREMMA

THE LAND OF GOOD EATING AND DRINKING

In the sorroundings of the Cernaia Residence Castiglione della Pescaia, the quality of the food and wine alone is suffient reason to visit this province. Beyond the appeal of the sea and the hills or that of the archeological attractions, there is acquacotta, the dish par excellence of the Maremma, or delicious papparedelle alla lepre, egg noodles with hare sauce, or tortelli ripieni di bietola e ricotta con sughi di carne, ravioli stuffed with chard and ricotta cheese with meat sauce, to make a visit worth while.

THE OLD WINE TRADITION

In a land of hunters, there are tasty dishes of wild-boar, hare and pheasant. But there are also fish dishes which are delicate and vigorous at the same time. Then there are soups and garlic breads boasting of delicious local olive oil and innumerable cheeses and wines. Both the wines and the olive oils from this area are exceptional. Fine D.O.C. wines exhault the unique flavors of the excellent local dishes. The Maremma offers many wine and gastronomical itineraries to serious connoisseurs and those who simply love good food and wine. One may follow the Strade del Vino: the “Colli di Maremma” with one of the princes of Tuscan red, Morellino di Scansano; the “Montegregio-Massa Marittima” with examples of the Maremma’s new wine growing and producing abilities and, the last founded, Montecucco with the unique flavors of a wine born on mountain slopes.
