Gourmet Evening at Firenze Restaurant in Kibworth with Princess Natalia Strozzi

A gourmet evening of excellence last week at Firenze Restaurant in Kibworth with wines from the Guicciardini Strozzi Estates in Tuscany. We were presented the wines by non other than the Princess Natalia, daughter of the owner The Principe Strozzi and direct descendent of the Mona Lisa's model painted by Leonardo. The evening was a fantastic success where we were able to taste 6 of the Strozzi'a wines:

  • the Cusona 33 Vernaccia Spumante
  • Arabesque, a superb example of a Verementino from Maremmashire
  • Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG, the classic from the original estate created in the year 994
  • Ocra (blood of the earth) a red blend from the Bolgheri region of Tuscany
  • Millanni, their super Tuscan, created to celebrate 1000 ears of activity
  • finally a Passito of Pantelleria, a desert wine from their estate in the island of Pantelleria between Sicily and North Africa.

                Thank you Natalia for a lovely evening and superb wines and a special                 thank you to Sarah and Lino (the chef) that hosted the event at their   SuperTuscan Millannirestaurant complementing the wines with their top quality food.
