Last Spring my wife and I joined Dario and a small group of Americans at the Dievole winery near Siena. After taking us on a most enjoyable and informative tour of the winery we had a superlative lunch with Dario at the winery. During lunch we sampled several of the excellent Dievole wines, which included a remarkable Chianti Classico riserva and an excellent super Tuscan. During lunch Dario patiently and articulately informed us of many interesting facts and details regarding the history and culture of the Siena area. To better understand his remarkable insight into this region, I had the advantage of having read several of Dario’s excellent books prior to our trip. If you are considering a trip to Siena, do yourself a favor and (if you are lucky) arrange to meet with Dario Castagno.
