A tour of Tuscany and a taste of Chianti wines

We are staying in Florence, the capital of Tuscany. Florence is not a particularly attractive city, but the surrounding region is fantastic. Tuscany is known for its landscapes, traditions, history, artistic legacy and its permanent influence on high culture. It is regarded as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and has been home to many figures influential in the history of art and science.

Tuscany is also famous for its wines, including the well-known Chianti. We enjoyed lunch at Tenuta Torciano Winery with a brief lesson in wine tasting including a taste of a number of Chianti wines, Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar.
