TENUTA LA FRATTA
At the junction of Umbria and Tuscany lies the Val di Chiana, a wide fertile valley boasting lovely medieval villages, beautiful rural landscapes and the eponymous Chianina cattle breed, from which the best bistecca Fiorentina is prepared.
The Tenuta la Fratta, in the town of Sinalunga, is definitely worth the detour. This historic estate has been raising Chianina cows since 1934 and won, on this account, many awards and prizes. After strolling among the historic buildings of the Tenuta, make sure to visit the farm’s shop or book a table at the onsite restaurant La Toraia, which keeps a direct sypply chain to markets and restaurants in Florence, Rome and Turin.
