Wine Tasting

I had fun many times helping as a grape harvester; part of our family
produces one of the best wines in Italy, if not the world: I’m talking
about the Montalcino Brunello wine. Those relatives of mine own the
“Le Chiuse” winery, and they have recently been awarded the 2 nd prize
by the Wine Enthusiast list of the best wines in the world! Needless
to say, I can easily arrange for you a tour of their vineyards and
cellar – including, of course, wine tasting. My mum’s cousin,
Simonetta Valiani, the owner, is a descendant of Ferruccio Biondi
Santi, the man who first produced the current version of Brunello in
the late 1800’s – and she knows what she’s doing!
