Azienda Agricola Padeletti

During our trip to Tuscany for a Brunello wine fair in Montalcino, we had the pleasure of meeting many producers who had a lot to say about their product. We were taken back by one in particular, who we first met at a restaurant they also own in the center of Montalcino. The restaurant is called Osteria D'Altri Tempi, was recommended to us by a friend back in Venice but also by the owner of the apartment we rented. It was your typical Tuscan Osteria with typical Tuscan food. Our appetizers were amazing and simple. A piece of Tuscan bread with melted fresh pecorino cheese and honey (did you know Montalcino is also known as the city of honey?) and a plate of sliced meets, cheeses and a few bruschetta's. For the main course we shared rabbit in a Brunello sauce and Cingiale (wild boar). Everything was unforgetable, but the wine we drank with our dinner was out of this world. The Brunello Padelletti 1998 was so elegant and balanced I couldnt believe it only cost 20 Euro and I couldnt wait to try more of their product.
The day after the wine fair we stopped by the home of the Padeletti family, which is also their site of production and run by the son Silvano, and was shown around. Probably the oldest producers in Montalcino (that still exist) they had labels from over 100 years ago and bottles dating back to the 20's. Fermentation tanks dating back to who knows when made out of cemente and made to fit within the small walls of the place. We tasted their lastest brunello out (a 2004) which was still better than most of the brunellos I had tasted the day before, but I was still dreaming of the '98. Their price/quality is excellent and they themselves are humble and kind people who are proud of their heritage as wine makers. If ever in the area, you must check them out!

Durante il nostro soggiorno a Montalcino abbiamo trascorso una piacevole serata nell'Osteria D'Altri Tempi situata in un vicoletto (via Landi). Un tipico locale toscano dove si possono trovare squisiti piatti come la Bruschetta con pomodorini, fegatini e crema al radicchio; Pane con pecorino e miele(veramente delizioso); Zuppe toscane; Coniglio al Brunello; Spezzatino di Cinghiale tutti presentati con amore dalla proprietaria. Tra un piatto e l'altro abbiamo conosciuto anche il figlio Silvano che ci invitava a visitarli durante la manifestazione Benvenuto Brunello 2009 in quanto son produttori di un ottimo Brunello. L'Azienda Agricola Padeletti è una delle più antiche a Montalcino e produce un vino ottenuto come da disciplinare da sole uve Sangiovese chiamato Brunello il suolo è ricco di detriti e ceneri vulcaniche prodotti in tempi remoti dal Monte Amiata infatti il vino presenta una spiccata mineralità e i profumi dalla viola mammola si spostano al tabacco alla cannella con tannini molto levigati dando al fluido una grande eleganza. Il Brunello Padelletti 1998 è quello da noi degustato, facilmente lo si può trovare sia all'Osteria D'Altri Tempi sia con una bella introduzione di Silvano nel sito dell'Azienda Agricola Padelletti ad un rapporto qualità/prezzo davvero conveniente.

Awesome blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a
paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely confused .. Any suggestions? Appreciate it!
