... good, so we entered the Cantina Contucci -- the winery I had alluded to earlier that gives free tastings. We walked in and checked out their palazzo and incredibly large wine cellar with immense barrels. That place doesn't mess around. They make some _wine_. Afterward, we headed into the tasting room and were in there with groups from Australia, New Zealand, and another couple from the US. They poured 4 glasses of Nobile -- one aged a single year, and several others that grew ...

... the tram. Then after circling a few times Peter finds a parking spot. A bar owner confirms we can indeed stop there. But then we discover the tram is not running into the city :-( . Finally with another shop owner's help we load into a taxi for the short drive. We make it with enough time to have lunch at a cafe. We meet Antonella at the Galleria dell' Accademia. Our purpose is to see David then tour this part ...
