  • Restaurant Villa Sangiovese, Panzano, +39 055 85 24 61, fax: +39 055 85 24 63. Panoramic view out over the vineyards, olive trees and cypresses of the Chianti hills.
  • Villa Bordoni. Part of the hotel by the same name, the Villa Bordoni restaurant is made up of two intimate rooms which open onto an Italian garden, perfumed by the bouquet of Florentine roses that wind their way along its stone walls. For those who prefer to dine under the stars or watch the sun set slowly behind the Chianti hills, candle-lit tables are dotted amongst the palms and box hedges. In the cooler months, the fireplace is lit to make a crackling fire. The wine cellar is carved directly out of the bedrock upon which the Villa stands. Formerly a dungeon attached to a fortified watchtower, it dates back to the 11th century, and is all that remains of the original structure. Many hard-to-find vintages and Tuscan wine icons such as Querciabella, Fontodi, La Massa and Poggio Scalette are present in the list of reds, whereas amongst the whites there is a strong preference for the northern regions of Alto Adige and Friuli.
