      ... famous gelato - a new benchmark for sure, the best known being a mix involving saffron, spices, orange peel, wine and other stuff. The raspberry we had with it was excellent too. Too excellent. I tried the local white wine, very astringent and a great aperitif wine, so different from red chianti. I also bought some artisan beer ( untasted) so we'll see about that later. I climbed the highest watch tower and took in the views while M had a go at shopping without a millstone around her ...
