15 April 2012...we visited in the rain but enjoyed a warm reception from Alessandra, a great tour with Rosa learning about wine- and olive oil-making, and a delightful "light" lunch (actually quite substantial) with 3 wine tastings (also substantial). First course was a light-as-a-feather rosemary & fennel flan (excellent). Second course was tortellini with ricotta & stinging nettle/herb (ortica) filling and a brown butter sauce (superlative). Third course was ziti with tomato sauce featuring garlic and parsley (good). Dessert was a vanilla bavarese (like jello made with cream but much finer than jello) with a rich chocolate syrup. Having been advised to save a little of each wine for the end of the meal, we found this paired well with the chiantis. We were so enchanted by the whole experience, we sent a case of the wine to my parents, to try to share the experience.
