Brunello heaven

italy-240
Nothing describes Italy as well as this picture….
an INCREDIBLE bottle of wine…it kept on giving, notes of mushroom and chocolate…
an incredibly simple yet elegant meal…my favorite, pear, mushroom and cheese salad tossed with a hint of aged balsamic and olio!
my husband and love of my life, by my side
my new baby, cooing and kicking back enjoying the view of the fig tree
two of the best friends in the world, with us and enjoying great conversations about traveling the world with all of our kids (9 total!)…
a view of rolling vineyards, sun shining, sitting on the terrace
Italian grandmother sitting on the sofa watching TV
a proprietor pouring our “nectar” into a decanter…
a roving attorney turned waiter…traveling the world and sharing with us his stories…
huge jars full of the corks…
a woman hanging her laundry on her roof…
tiny roads…
poppies…
and, did I mention, an incredible bottle of Casanova di Niri Brunello di Montalcino 2001!!
