Bye bye Tuscany, hello Roma!

A travel blog entry by 2swans

Our 5 days in Tuscany have come to an end. Farewell meal the night before at our restaurant of choice in Radda in Chianti (Le del Chianti) and had one of the best Italian meals I have ever had!

Tonight I want to catch up on projects I am behind on so I will continue writing later as this weekend unfolds.

Arriving in Siena, I meet my host after getting Montalcino and Bus Tickets

Montalcino - Searching for Brunello

A travel blog entry by diandron

This is a top pick!

... to the town of Castelnuovo dell' Abate, passing more vineyards and olive groves along the way. For our next tasting, the sommelier at Poggio Antico suggested we try Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona. We are so glad he pointed us in this direction. The first Brunello that we taste is excellent, quite different from those we had tasted earlier. Keep in mind that most of the factors from the first winery to the second are quite similar - same vintage, ...
