Chestnuts of Monticiano

A product that gives flavour to many dishes

Chestnut is a fruit that grows in the fall, within the forested part of the Apennini where it overlooks the Valle dell'Ombrone. Tuscany's always been proud of his product, and in many parts of the territory there are recipes that give rise to a special bread, tasty cakes or pasta dishes. In the Valle dell'Ombrone you can enjoy the classic "castagnaccio" and bread made from chestnut flour. The numerous dining options, or bakers present in Chiusdino, Monticiano and Sovicille allow always to find these two specialties.

Chestnut gnocchi with pine nuts are a delicacy. Even these can be tasted in the splendid Tuscany dell'ombrone accompanied with good red wine. All these delicious dishes are the result of careful processing of chestnut. For this reason the "craftsmen" of the chestnut always devote attention and passion for seeking a quality product.
