Whatever you do when you get to Tuscany, get your buns to an up and coming boutique winery Leuta. Enzo is a young passionate winemaker who recently traded in a banker’s desk to devote himself to the art of winemaking. We were able to see firsthand the destemming and pulping of syrah grapes. FYI 2012 Tuscan wines will be an exceptional vintage.
Besides learning about wine and winemaking we ate a lot of bisteca. There was some exploring of Montepulciano. This town was surprisingly tranquil with lots of meandering, streets to stroll.
