Anyone undergoing some therapy? how about a musical one?
I just stopped by for my session a day ago invited by Wineone (Thanks to Wineone!), ended up relaxed, little tipsy and what’s improtant- merry.
It’s a musical Italian wine tasting: Il Paradiso di Frassina
comprises 9 ha of vines, all red, and all planted in 2000-2001 by Carlo Cignozzi, a retired lawyer (and former national swimming champion) who funded this venture by selling his shares in the Brunello producer Altesino. The vines occupy two sites: four ha for Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino around the winery on the north, Montosoli hillside of Montalcino; and five ha around 13 miles (20 km away) nearer the coast at Cinigiano for IGT Toscana and Sant’Antimo reds (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cesanese d’Affile, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Marselan, Ancellotta, Alicante Bouschet, Carmenère, Tannat and Canaiolo). Both vineyards gained organic certification in 2008.
Today, the drive down the winding road with the sound of music playing through all the Bose sponsored speakers will give you chill bumps. I think I need to go over to this rehab land this summer in need for some good therapy myself!!
