We’re thrilled to welcome Tenuta Fanti back to Toronto with a very special wine dinner at Tutti Matti on Saturday, October 29. Export manager Irene Dal Canto, and Le Sommelier president Bernard Stramwasser will lead us through the wines and olive oils of this historic Tuscan estate, paired to a spectacular dinner from chef / owner Alida Solomon.
The Tenuta Fanti estate has belonged to the Fanti family since the beginning of the eighteenth century. It extends across 300 hectares in Toscana, 52 hectares of which are specialized certified sustainable vineyards (in conversion to organic), 110 hectares are olive orchards, 80 hectares are used for seed plots, and 70 hectares are forests. They are widely recognized for their high quality wines, regularly listed in top restaurants around the globe.
The farm also is home to 8,500 olive trees of the most prestigious Tuscan varieties, as well as a traditional olive stone mill. Thanks to the high elevation of the trees, the early picking and the quick crushing of the olives, the oil is characterized by low acidity and a complex flavour profile.
The wines and olive oils showcased at the dinner will also be available for purchase by the bottle:
2021 Soralisa Sant’Antimo Bianco DOC
2020 Poggio Torto IGT Toscana Rosso
2020 Rosso di Montalcino DOC
2017 Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
2015 Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Vallocchio
2014 Vin Santo Sant’Antimo DOC

Tickets for this exclusive dinner are $280 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Reserve your space for this evening directly with Tutti Matti via their Open Table page, or by firstname.lastname@example.org.
