In the stunning 5-star resort Castello Banfi Il Borgo, set in a 13th century Tuscan castle, what made our experience at the resort even more memorable was the incredible lunch at La Taverna. At their classical Tuscan restaurant Taverna Banfi, built in the former barrel cellars of the castle, our lunch was truly unforgettable. As we crossed the beautiful entrance vault of “Taverna”, we were welcomed with a glass of “La Pettegola”, every fresh and fruity Vermentino that smells and tastes like peach. We sipped on it and took some time to admire the beautiful rustic décor of the restaurant. “This is going to be epic”, Alec whispered excitedly. Since the very first moment we sat at our table, the staff had us covered: a basket of warm gluten-free bread was immediately served. It’s time to give the house-made condiments a try. The extra virgin olive oil “Poggioalle Mura Fruttato Intenso” was extremely rich and delicious, but it’s their “Condimento Balsamico Etrusco” that impressed us the most.
