Oh Tuscany, the land of perfumed olive bitter trees and scent of almond wine. With this in mind I want to tell you a story about tasting wine in Greve in Chianti.
The starting point is Florence. You can rent a car or pay for a day trip to a winery news to Florence, right in the heart of Tuscany.
I paid 90 euros for two persons for a half day trip. My advice is to take a day trip or weekend because you will have so much to see and you should enjoy every minute. Here it is one example of this kind of trip.
The departure point for almost every trip organised is in front of the train Central Station. You will arrive in Greve in Chianti in 2 hours. The whole trip lasts for 8 hours. I visited Greve in Chianti and two wineries close by.
You will travel by coach, it has air conditioning and wireless internet.
Actually, the wood is so strongly scented that the tree was planted around the houses, churches and cemeteries in Tuscany as people believed that the air was “freshened” by the tree, giving rise to the quintessential “Tuscan landscape” that we hold as being typical of the area.
This is the first winery that we visited and the biggest one. We were 20 person in the group and we tasted 2 or 3 kinds of wine.
Here the star was vinsanto (dessert wine). It’s characteristic amber colour is becaue cantucci biscuits (biscuits with almond) are used in the process of making.
