|il Poggio Entrance|
Tuscany, Italy was everything I thought it would be and more. We stayed at il Poggio, a resort owned by farmers who maintain organic orchards, raise organic fed animals, and serve them all in their Tuscan restaurant in the Main House. They also have a vineyard and skilled equestrian center. The hill where the farm stands offers peerless views over the Crete Senesi.
Thanks to the generous Monta Amiata, beneficial spring waters bubble to relax you at the local spas like those in San Casciano dei Bagni, Chianciano, Bagni San Filippo, Montepulciano or Bagno Vignoni. About 20 km from the Il Poggio farm you'll find the Monte Rufeno Nature Reserves, full of paths suited for every age in a vast area where flora and fauna flourish protected.

The kitchen in the authentic Tuscan restaurant of this estate is enhanced by the organic farm that cultivates the Poggio in his vine Sangiovese and breeds in its vast green spaces. From the Cinta Senese , the Pici and handmade pasta, the ' DOP oil organic virginuntil wine Rosso del Poggio and Poggio Corno , these food and wine can be enjoyed in the Main House restaurant or can be purchased at Dispensa Mafalda , even on line.
|A Taste of Tuscany|
We lived in apartment #13 during our stay and it was towards the back of the apartment area near the most amazing restaurant I've ever been to! They served handmade Pici pasta, boar, rabbit, spinach filled chicken, and so much more. Everything was fresh and grown locally, we even had a bottle of local wine from Montepulciano called Vino Nobile.
