“La Cena” of the Winegrowers of Radda 2024

“La Cena” of the Winegrowers of Radda 2024

On Saturday June 15th at 7.30 pm, in the historic Piazza Ferrucci of Radda in Chianti (Siena), “La Cena” of the Winegrowers of Radda 2024 will take place. The occasion will be the much anticipated presentation of the 2020 vintage of “53017” – the collective wine of Radda winemakers. The dinner will be accompanied by the most prestigious wines of the 25 members.

Francesco Berardinelli, chef of the ‘Barlèsh’ restaurant in Montevarchi (Arezzo), will create the menu for this year’s dinner. Barlèsh does ‘Cucina Improvvisa’, subtle and spontaneous cuisine, far from fashion, with attention to the traditions of the territory and the people who live it every day.

Francesco Berardinelli does not have a Tuscan accent: his mother is Venetian, his father is Molisano. He was born in Piedmont, on Lake Maggiore and arrived in Tuscany with his parents in the Seventies. After studying hotel management and hospitality in school he left for New York to work at the famed ‘San Domenico’ restaurant. Upon returning to Italy, he opened his first restaurant, ‘L’Osteria di Rendola’ in Montevarchi. As articles were published, journalists noticed him and his work and in 2000 he opened the second restaurant, ‘Beccofino’ in Florence which made the cover of ‘Wine Spectator’. From that moment everything changes: chefs arrive from all over the world to taste and discover what Francesco Berardinelli cooks: Heston Blumenthal from London, Ferran Adrià from Spain and Alain Ducasse from Paris. He receives invitations and participates in the most important culinary festivals and he cooks all over the world. “I did everything as a chef, I achieved what I wanted and I am now in the right place, what was already in my head, I returned to Barlèsh” says Berardinelli.

The collective wine from the winemakers of Radda “53017”
One Territory, 25 winemakers, one soul.
25 cellars, 25 lands, 25 shades of Sangiovese from the county of Radda in Chianti have given life to a wine of excellence, equilibrium and representation of the territory.
An iconic bottle, created to express the collaboration between the producers of the Radda Winegrowers Association and at the same time promotes their bond with the territory.
To carry out this special project, each member selected and provided 27 liters of their best Sangiovese, the main grape variety of Chianti Classico, and combined it with that of the other members to produce the “53017”, the Sangiovese of the Winegrowers of Radda. The name of the wine is dedicated to the postal code of Radda in Chianti. A unique project, the blended wine rests in the depths of the cellars of Castello di Albola before seeing the light in the special Magnum bottle format. Each bottle is numbered by hand to enhance its exclusivity and uniqueness.
