The Toscanello d’oro, the traditional event of wines produced in the area of Pontassieve, Florence , is now 43. A nice tradition of which the locals, so tied to their glorious past, are very proud. Now, the downtown hosts for a four days’ wine festival, accompanied by cultural events, exhibitions and readings. A good opportunity to spend pleasant days, sipping good wines and listening to good music or shopping at the stalls of the local food market, rich of genuine produce. Pontassieve has infact been since the end of the 19th and 20th centuries an agricultural center proving Florence with high quality products.
The Wine Citadel in piazza Vittorio Emanuele II, focus of the event, will let you discover new horizons in guided wine tastings. All that in the joyous atmosphere of the Corteo Storico, a renaissance parade, the witness of its strong ties with Florence , just at 11 kms away .
