Important artists, gourmet encounters and tastings at Val delle Rose
After the success of the last two seasons, the Cecchi family proposes a series of initiatives aimed at enhancing the Estate involving important chefs of the area and musicians of national and international fame, all this accompanied by the wines from the same Estate, protagonists of each appointment. This includes the newly-born Litorale Rosato 2017, an explosion of Maremma with its fresh and versatile Sangiovese for a monovarietal tasting but perfect to pair with menus going from the greenest menu to fish. “Val delle Rose is not only wine: we want to make our Estate in Maremma come alive in all its glory,” says Andrea Cecchi.
Amongst the chosen names we find Stefano Di Battista together with Nicky Nicolai and Elio accompanied by Luca Schieppati: the first two, very famous in all the world’s jazz circles and not only, make up a duo of saxophone and voice, an absolute couple, expression of Italian pop music at its best. Elio, famous for his “Storie Tese”, has another role here, different from what we are used to seeing on TV. Together with Luca Schieppati at the piano, he presents a classic music show and explains: “we are in a historic phase where the need for quality is felt, but few know these pieces. Thus our intention is to play them for those who would never have had the opportunity nor the will to listen to them.”
This artistic itinerary will take place on Saturday, 30th June with Stefano Di Battista and Nicky Nicolai’s musical event and Saturday, 4th August with Elio’s music, both preceded by a buffet with tasting. Together with the music we have the cuisine of chefs from Maremma such as Massimiliano Ciregia of Osteria del Mare in Castiglione della Pescaia, Mirko Martinelli of Oasi in Follonica and Moreno Cardone of Uva e Malto in Grosseto on stage respectively on Saturday, 14th July, Saturday, 25th August and Saturday, 15th September.
On the other dates, 21st July, 10th August, 22nd September and 13th October there will be aperitifs with wines from the Estate and background music. Apart from this programme, it is always possible to organize tours of the vineyards, visit the cellar, book a tasting or typical meal. Situated in an area full of stunning and wild landscapes, archeological ruins and thermal baths, Tenuta Val delle Rose is an ideal place to appreciate the treasures of its land
