A Short Tour Of Chianti

What do you think of when you think about Chianti? Wine, naturally. And rolling countryside. This video was taken in a small town in the Colli Fiorentini (or Florence hills) and whilst it was inspired by a lunch rich in the first, it showcases the beauty of the second!

Sundays in traditional Italian towns without a lot of tourist footfall are very quiet times. In fact, you could be forgiven for thinking that towns are deserted, especially around lunchtime and early afternoon. Italians at this time are enjoying the delights of three of the key ingredients in life: family, food and football. Or soccer, if you are that way inclined.

    Thanks for taking me to that lovely village. I seemed to have missed it on my scooter ride through Chianti.
