We are huge fans of Italian wine – however we would be the first to admit that the many regions and local grape varieties can seem a little complicated. In order to demystify a small but extremely prestigious area of Italian wine, we are presenting a range of wines from our favourite Tuscan producers – Tenuta le Calcinaie, Riecine, Il Molino di Grace, Ambra and Sesti.

Manicomio in the City is a gastronomic haven in a stunning Sir Norman Foster building. The chef has created a delicious menu to complement our wines. And if we are lucky with the weather drinks will be outside on their terrace.
