Chianti

We headed to the region of Chianti where picturesque Tuscany that so many of us have in our minds from movies like "Under the Tuscan Sun" and "A Walk in the Clouds" truly lives and breathes. 

 

We headed to Tenuta Casanova, an all organic farm and vineyard for one of the best meals of the trip thus far. Everything on the table was gathered from within 5 miles of where we were sitting. Wine from the grapes of the vineyard, meat from the wild boar of the forests, honey from the local bees on at the farm, 30 year old balsamic that had been aged in the cellars below. I know it sounds a bit like a dream...and to be honest, it truly was. The whole experience was magical, just like this region.
