Take a gondola ride with me through the streets of Venice as I share my experience of dreaming about going to a single location in an obsessive manner since I was like 8 years old! How I learned about managing my expectations – and how understanding my expectations or how to convey them has really helped me in my life as a whole.
Wine Highlight of the Week: 2016 Pieve Castelletto Chianti
This wine is from the region of Chianti, It is very hard to give precise borders to the Chianti area in Tuscany. This is because the name of Chianti is traditionally referred to as the area between Florence and Siena where Chianti wine has been produced and not a definite territorial area with boundaries. With time, the area where Chianti wine is produced has grown. Parts of these areas, excluding Impruneta, grow the grapes that are transformed into “Chianti Classico DOCG” wine. If we go beyond the “Classico” area, Chianti wine has a total of 8 denominations, such as Colli Fiorentini, Colli Senesi, and Chianti Rufina, to name just a few, that further extend the territory of Chianti as can be seen in this smaller map to the right.
