“Toscana Gustando” meets Emilia Romagna

A succesfull encounter between two neighbouring regions, both proud of their identity, their history and their cultural differences. Emilia Romagna and Tuscany are indeed among the most famous italian territory, appreciated and loved all around the world.

The meeting between these two regions was celebrated November 8th and 9th: a partnership that starts with wine and food. The stars of the weekend have been the products of local tradition, a meeting between similar and different flavours.

The outdoor market of “Toscana Gustando” was held along the streets of the historical centre of Montepulciano, from morning until sunset. In this way we have created an itinerary of taste and flavours, including rinascimanetali buildings and underground cellars. The valorization of the territory and its excellence, in fact, creates through mixing of flavours and emotions, history and architecture, music and taste. All the experiences necessary to enjoy Montepulciano, in short.

Many people have participated to this event. They have tasted piadine, tortellini, parmigiano reggiano, balsamic vinegar and mortadella from Emilia-Romagna. Beside these products were particularly appreciated the excellence of Tuscany: cold cuts, cheeses, pork, oil, honey, truffles, jams, chocolate and much more. And certainly could not have missed the tasting of typical wines of our territory: Rosso di Montepulciano DOC and Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG.

“Toscana Gustando” is now in its fifth edition, and every year celebrate a meeting of flavours between our region and another region of Italy. Thanks to the organization of the “Strada del Vino Nobile di Montepulciano” and the participation of the “Centro Commerciale Naturale” and the “Pro Loco di Montepulciano”, was involved all the commercial sector of the city. In addition to the all-day opening of shops, the visitors were able to enjoy the entertainment provided by magic shows and juggling traveling from Sant’Agostino to Chiesa del Gesù.

Between a Piadina and a glass of Vino Nobile, then, we see you next year for a new edition of “Toscana Gustando”!

Dopo un master in turismo e un corso da sommelier (la passione per il vino viene dal nonno paterno), si occupa di turismo enogastronomico alla Strada del Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Viaggia molto volentieri per piacere e a volte per lavoro, e le due cose spesso si confondono. Abita nella campagna Toscana e al mattino, mentre va al lavoro verso Montepulciano, pensa di essere fortunata: il paesaggio cambia molto con le stagioni ma è sempre una meraviglia, e il traffico al massimo è intasato da un trattore che porta le uve in tempo di vendemmia.
