Four of us had lunch and winetasting at Poggio Alloro as part of a tour. The food was excellent. All organic, locally grown on site, and prepared from scratch. We had bruschetta, penne with a meat sauce, and roast pork with roast potatoes, almond biscotti for dessert. All superb. We tried four wines, all excellent. First a white made from a variety that grows only around San Gimignano, then a Chianti followed by a cabernet sauvignon, finally a dessert wine. All were excellent, but we liked the cabernet best. The Chianti sells for around 5 euros a bottle and the cabernet for 10 euros. They also bottle a merlot. We bought some of both. The staff was wonderful. Very friendly, efficient, knowledgeable.
The grounds are beautiful and the rooms look very nice from the outside. I would definitely consider staying there.
