About the Event

The Etruscan necropolis of Poggino presents the remains of some Etruscan tombs.

In the archaeological area, located in a wood, five tombs have been found, four of

which are chamber and one caisson, dating back to the 6th century. BC, materials

and furnishings have been recovered inside. Part of the findings made in these

tombs are exhibited in the atrium of the Medieval Fortress of Castellina in Chianti,

among these there are two Attic black-figure amphorae, Etruscan-Corinthian

ointments from the Vulcente factory, others in glass paste, decorations and parts of

weapons in bronze and iron.

After our walk we will have the pleasure to be welcomed back to a beautifully

restored 17th century Tuscan villa for an outdoor sit down 3 course lunch with

organic wine pairing.

The food and wine are carefully selected to highlight some of the artisan products

available at the Tenuta. You will each receive your own charcuterie board of hand

selected Casa Ceccatelli cured meats and cheeses to pair with the wines of choice.

We will follow with hand-made pasta ragú and finally a dessert carefully curated with

the Tenuta Ceccatelli’s own aged (18year) organic balsamic vinegar.
