Born and raised in Tuscany, Cinzia is the Chef de Cuisine at Antinori’s renowned Trattoria della Fonte on the Fonte de Medici estate in the heart of the Chianti region in Italy, overlooking the famed Tignanello and Solaia Vineyards. Prior to this, she was the personal chef for the Antinori family at their Guado al Tasso estate on the Tuscan coast near Bolgheri.

Cinzia’s cooking is refined and flavored by the centuries-long traditions of rustic Tuscan authenticity.
