“A beautiful, timeless setting.” A review of Taverna dei Barbi, our estate’s tavern and restaurant

We were thrilled this morning to read a review of our estate’s tavern and restaurant by the popular Italian wine blog Intravino, one of its recommendations for dining in Montalcino.

La Taverna dei Barbi

A beautiful, timeless setting. Medieval décor, tapestries, curtains, paintings, and low lighting. These touches and the fireplace, especially, give this place everything it needs to put you in the mood for the joys of the palate. We were there on a cold, rainy evening: It was so lovely to taste at least four first courses, including the unforgettable pappardelle al cinghiale (pappardelle with wild boar ragù) and a spectacular never-ending selection of game dishes.

On the wine list, you can choose different vintages from Fattoria dei Barbi’s production. And it’s likely that you’ll also meet (owner) Stefano Cinelli Colombini who’s always eager to chat and share a glass of wine.

It’s always a treat to return to a spot where your belly and mind are rewarded with pleasure and well-being.
