Wine tastings take place at the Nozzole Estate, about 8Km from Pietra del Cabreo, where the Tenute Ambrogio e Giovanni Folonari winery has its headquarters. Guests can reach Nozzole by car or by bicycle. It is also possible to order a taxi. Our staff is happy to help with bookings which need to be made well in advance, especially during the summer.
Each tasting is always accompanied by typical bruschetta bread with our Nozzole EVO oil and local delicacies and includes the tasting of 3-4 wines, with ample varietal choice between Chianti Classico, Super Tuscans, our ‘Icon’ wines or white wines. In addition it is also possible to visit our oak barrel (barriques) ageing cellar and our collection of historical vintages.
Daily tours can be booked through our staff. We offer our guests a 20% discount on tours and tastings.
We will guide you along a sensory journey explaining how terroir of origin and different winemaking methods give distinctive characteristics to Tuscany’s most representative grape variety: Sangiovese.
A journey that will take you from Florence to Siena, exploring the history of winemaking written by famous wines like Chianti Classico, Nobile di Montepulciano and Brunello di Montalcino.
The tour includes a guided tasting and a visit of the oak barrel ageing cellar and our collection of the best historic vintages dating from 1980.
The Baby Super Tuscans represent a new style of wines made with the same grapes that have contributed to Tuscany’s winemaking renaissance
They are called Baby SuperTuscans, because, while sharing the same grape blends as their senior ‘cousins’ SuperTuscans, they do not undergo any aging in wood, but only in steel. This makes them very fresh, soft on the palate and rich of fruit scents, perfect for aperitifs and in combination with Tuscan delicacies.
The Wine Shop at Pietra del Cabreo carries a selection of our excellent wines, our extra-virgin EVO olive oil and a line of exclusive products created for us by a Florentine designer. For a complete offering of our wines, we suggest a visit to the Wine Shop at Tenuta di Nozzole where you can also book a wine tour and tasting.
