Chianti

Valle del Chianti - Toscana da Robyn Hooz
Tramite Flickr:
A wonderful scene, straight out of camera: driving by the red and yellow grapes and enjoying their best colors of the autumn. Tuscany is a fantastic land for photographers and dreamers. Una scena meravigliosa, senza nessuna elaborazione: guidare nei pressi delle viti rosse e gialle e gioire dei loro migliori colori autunnali. La toscana è una terra fantastica per i fotografi ed i sognatori.

2010 Monte Bernardi Retromarcia Chianti Classico DOCG

Hehe, this is some awesome stuff. VERY funky on the nose when first opened. Lots of funk, earth, dirt, mushrooms, and aged meats. Oh yeah, there are some fruits too -  plums and cherries - with sweet balsamic. Great acidity. Much cleaner on the palate. Very, very cool.

Toscana. Chianti is a red Italian wine produced in Tuscany. The first definition of a wine-area called Chianti was made in 1716. The earliest documentation of a Chianti wine dates back to the 13th century when viticulture was known to flourish in the Chianti Mountains around Florence.
