If you like wines can´t miss this place. They have an exposition of more then 1.500 different wines in the underground and after the visit you can taste and buy some of them in the bar.

This ambience, the area, the wall and the wine, this was a nice respite on the walking tour. The wine variety and the service were great!

“Excellent place to take a short break!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

While the dinner menu may be considered "pricey" by some, stopping here in the afternoon gave us a delightful chance to take a break. Several varieties of wine were available for purchase by the glass, or for tasting. We also ordered a meat/cheese tray that was a perfect accompanyment for our wine tasting. The setting is quiet and very historic. It is an easy walk from the center of the city.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

If you are visiting Sienna this place is very quiet but will be an axperience you will never forget. This enoteca (wine bar ) is located within the Medici Fortress. A wine and some nibbles will be a great start on an outcrop of the fort. Then go downstairs to the old armory, where they store their exclusive wines. Each area has an interactive display on the wines in that area.
The display and location is the most professional and stunning I have seen. If you are not buying wine go down anyway as the structure is fascinating and one of the more memorable of Sienna.

“The best place to stock your tuscan villa!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

The Enoteca Italiana is a hidden secret gem of Sienna (and Tuscany). It is publically owned and stock's a range of wines from all of italy's wine producing areas that have been tasted and selected as good examples of their type. This and the friendly and helpful staff and close to cellar door pricing for take away wines, make it the perfect place to stock up on wine for a Tuscan break. The venue is also a lovely place to stop off for a drink - it has a lovely roof terrace, 15 or so wines to try by the glass (about 3 euros a glass) and does some simple snacks (cheese, meats etc). This is the 4th time i have visited and have never encountered any large tour groups. If you are planning on buying any serious amount of wine park in the next door car park - to find this follow the signs for the Stadio (shown as a football symbol) as you enter Sienna - the Fortezza parking is on your left just before you arrive at the stadium!
