“Great wines”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

We love Sangiovese so we were in heaven in Umbria! The wine Alina makes is lovely, and we ordered and bought many different wines from the area and enjoyed them all. The wine tasting excursions we took were wonderful and we especially enjoyed touring the Ricci winery.
