It's hard not to wax lyrical about Calice dei Cherubini: the name says it all - it is the Cup worthy of Cherubs, Seraphs and angels.
The bucolic situation on the Oltrepò Hills has nothing to envy the Tuscan vineyards - a gently rolling landscape covered in ordered rows of vines as far as the eye can see, in muted autumnal hues, with here and there an orange maple or a golden poplar. The place has been so far preserved from mass tourism thanks to its seclusion.
The building is a renovated traditional farmstead where the kitchen and the restaurant are, with a separate barn for the storage and bottling of the wines they produce (pinot noir, barbera, bonarda, interesting blends, dessert wines and grappas.
Calice dei Cherubini is a harmoniously run family business, with an edifying history dating from 1964, in which three generations of Calatronis share the duties - cultivating, wine-making, cooking, serving. All is done with the highest professionality, to the customer's utmost satisfaction.
The set menu varies with the month and is comprised of several antipasti, two first courses, a meat course, a dessert and different generous wine tastings (6) pair every course, ending with caffè and grappa.
No faux pas, everything is perfect to a t. The bill is the most astonishing aspect of it all: 30 Euro for one of the most satisfying experiences you will have.
