Raffaello & Marco Viani
FROM THE TUSCAN HILLS
FLAVORS AND PASSIONS
For three generations we have been producing organic wines and extra virgin olive oil and we select wines and niche products from the authentic Tuscan tradition.
A NEW SEASON OPENS
FOR A SOLATIO
Innovation of tradition! From this concept our farm A Solatìo restarts 20 years ago replanting all the vineyards and shifting the objective from the production of quantity to that of quality mainly focusing on Tuscan vines, first of all Sangiovese, without losing sight of more international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon.
With the same care we select small and unknown Tuscan producers who adopt our same philosophy to obtain excellent wines, such as Brunello di Montalcino or Supertuscan of great refinement that have nothing to envy to much more well-known Tuscan wineries.
- Pickled zucchini, i-Tuscany
This month Selection
We chose our Pickled zucchini as the product of the month. Zucchini grown by farmers in Tuscany, to be eaten alone during an aperitif, as a side dish to boiled meats or in combination with our Sbriciolona – the Tuscan salami also called Finocchiona.

After many years of experience and product selection, we have extracted the guiding concept that inspires us whenever we need to add a product: time, quality, tradition.
The TIME, or rather the respect of the times, of processing, of maturation, of cooking, of settling, of seasoning… in short, do everything at the time and for the time due.
The QUALITY of raw, organic or first choice materials and of production processes.
TRADITION understood as an absolute respect for the methods and processing times, which constitute an obligatory and inseparable combination to be able to pass on those ancient rules that we call “culture of the Tuscan gastronomic tradition”.
We are attached to this tradition because we are convinced that the secret of quality lies precisely in respect for centuries of experience;and as John Ruskyn asserts:
“There is hardly anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price only are this man’s lawful prey.”.

TASTINGS IN THE VINEYARD AND IN THE WINERY CELL
An authentic Tuscan experience, so we love to define the tastings of food, wine and extra virgin olive oils that we can offer at our A Solatìo farm house, starting from the simplest, the intermediate and the most exclusive dinner to be held in the cellar surrounded by hundreds of wines or, in summer, on the panoramic terrace in the middle of our vineyards: not to be missed!
