Buon giorno, tutti. Once again, I find myself at Cafe Fiaschetteria for my morning cappucino. Yesterday after arriving at Casa Vigneto, I again found myself outside in the waning rays of sun sipping ‘un bicchiere di Brunello’ and listening to the wind whisper across the stunning Sienese valley.
The view of this ‘Plain of Angels’ as it is known continues to take my breath away and I never tire of my time at my little Casa Vigneto, a little house on the hillside nestled amongst Brunello vines. Dearest Enzo who owns the Casa and the vineyard which surrounds it, is busily working the new grape harvest into the magic of Brunello and the aroma of the new wine perfumes the air.
It was the perfect ending for a blessed year as I celebrate a birthday today and consider the possibilities of the year ahead…magical.
