Relais & Châteaux and Hennessy present the "Passion 2021" trophy to the Arnolfo restaurant in Colle di Val d'Elsa in Tuscany

Coming together to celebrate the passion that guides its members throughout their lives, Relais & Châteaux and its historical partner Hennessy award the "Passion Trophy" to the Arnolfo restaurant, a family business founded in 1982 by Giovanni Trovato.

Driven by the same vision, chef Gaetano Trovato and his brother Giovanni, the maître de maison and sommelier, work side-by-side to convey a story of taste and sharing that reflects their love for Tuscany and its products. Although the chef of the gourmet restaurant Arnolfo has spent the last four decades expressing his passion for the best products of the region, it is his commitment to the younger generation, and his support for local producers manifestly concerned about the environment and quality that sets him apart.

In the Arnolfo family, the taste for good things is savored as a calling. After training with some of Europe's greatest chefs, Gaetano Trovato returned to his home region and joined his mother and sister in opening the Arnolfo restaurant in a 17th century palace overlooking the Chianti hills in order to revisit the flavors of his childhood. Joined by his brother Giovanni, he offers a gourmet experience that draws on the quality of local and organic products. Since their earliest recollections, Gaetano and Giovanni have bought directly from the farmers around Colle di Val d'Elsa, and they still fervently forge links with Tuscan producers and winegrowers in their quest for excellence. By exalting the product, and breathing creativity into a tradition rooted in its terroir, the family's know-how has been awarded two stars in the 2021 Michelin Guide.
