Seila, Monte Chiaro's head Sommelier, has created this phenomenal Cheese and Wine Box for the most exacting of our gourmet connoisseurs.

 

Each shipment contains:

 

Primum Vinum Supertuscan (Sangiovese Red Wine) 2017

The Primum Vinum of Monte  Chiaro is our estate's signature wine. It expresses the full potential of the Sangiovese vine, carefully chosen from three single cru, the very best of our vineyards more than 15 years old. The grapes are meticulously picked by hand. The wine pairs well with rich, flavourful food, wild game, and herbed cheeses. Delectable now, it can also continue to mature for five more years.

Arteliquida Rosso Supertuscan (Tempranillo Red Wine) 2017

Using a single rare Tuscan grape, Malvasia Nera, Arteliquida Rosso opens new flavours from the grape and structures itself around minerals absorbed from the soils of Siena. Elegance from a delicate note of blackberry and a hint of raspberry gives a smooth lasting flavour along with a full body from 24 months in our French oak barrels.

3 Artisanal Montechiaro Organic "Pici" Pasta

A newcomer to the Monte Chiaro range, this version of a traditional Sienese speciality lifts the production of Pici (pronounced "peachy"), a chunky type of spaghetti, to an exceptionally high quality. Hand rolled with organic local flour and eggs, our peachy Pici go perfectly with Ragu' or meat sauce, while our Tagliatelle--flat noodle strips, a more famous form of pasta--mix well with pesto or tomato sauce. A packet of 500 g can feed 4-5 people.

Pecorino cheese with Blueberry, 500 g

This latest Forme D'Arte creation combines the sweet fruitiness of blueberries with the saltiness of aged sheep's cheese. The fusion of aromas creates a unique new taste.

Pecorino cheese with Chianti Wine, 500 g

The flocks of sheep roaming Tuscany's hills and the vineyards of the region's heartland produce Italy's finest Pecorino and its most famous wines, of which Chianti was the original flagship. Thanks to Paolo Pacenti, an organic wine producer, we now offer a combination of these emblematic Tuscan products in the form of firm-textured ewe's milk cheese tinged with Chianti. Grate it for pasta and soups and to complement salads and starters. Slice it to savour with honey, jam, fruit preserves, fresh vegetables or fruit, especially pears and figs.

Monte Chiaro Blackberry Honey, 120 ml

This ambrosia is the unique creation of the Fantozzi family. The finest acacia honey with local blackberry jam is an ideal match for pecorino cheese and breakfast toast. It's also great with white chocolate and ice cream.

Red Onion Marmalade, jar 90 g

Certaldo, near Florence, is famous as the home of Giovanni Boccaccio, the 14th century author of the Decameron, reminiscent of our current Plague. It was even then also famous for its onions, which the great poet and humanist praised. This sweet and strong preserve, made with organic ingredients to a family recipe by our own Roberta, is a traditional accompaniment for gorgonzola and pecorino, salami and prosciutto, boiled meatand mashed potatoes. 

Cacio e Pepe (cheese & pepper) Pasta's Mix

Cacio e Pepe is an energizing and warming pasta dish liked by shepherds in ancient times. Cacio is the Roman dialect word for cheese. The secret to perfection is to add some of the water in which the pasta was boiled.

Dolceforte Wildboard Ragout, jar 180 g

The wild boar (cinghiale) was a traditional mainstay of Tuscan cuisine in Renaissance times, now rare to find. Our Rosalia reproduces her grandmother's historic recipe braising the ragu' in a sweet and strong mix of cinnamon, ginger, cloves, black pepper, pine nuts, nutmeg, vinegar and raisins. Add honey to achieve a secret Sienese touch.

Chianina Cow Ragout, jar 180 g

Chianina is one of Italy's largest cattle breeds. Native to Valdichiana this majestic beast provides the famous Fiorentina steak. Its tasty and lean flesh is also the main ingredient of  an authentic Tuscan meat sauce for homemade pasta. A recipe not to be missed.
