Tortelli Maremmani, with their spinach and fresh ricotta filling, are best served with a wild boar or hare sauce
Tortelli Maremmani are one of the most famous dishes from southern Tuscany and used to be eaten on all festive occasions in the countryside.

Capoliveri is situated in the southeast of the Island of Elba, on a ridge of Mount Calamita, 167 meters above sea level. Mount Calamita is 413 meters high and is situated in the south-eastern part of the island. The great presence of magnetite in the area has contributed to the popular stories of shipwrecks along the coast. According to island lore, the minerals attracted the metal parts of ships, making them fatally crash against the cliffs of Punta Calamita. It is true, however, that in this area the compass needle is incredibly erratic.
