You will the opportunity to try the following specialties (according to the availability of raw ingredients, season and the chef’s choices): Cured meats and local cheeses from Tuscany: a traditional Florencian aperitivo, tasting local meats, cheeses and toasted breads, along with a glass of Chianti, in the framework of one of the oldest and most famous wine bar of the city.
