A 70th birthday celebration brought us to Tuscany. The acquired memories of Tuscany will bring us back, I'm sure. Driving along the country roads of Italy revealed the Italy that authors have longed-for in their words.
The crumbling houses where one can imagine a hunched-over nonna stirring a pot of simmering tomatoes or expertly folding some tortellini. The country markets with boxes full of artichokes, basil, and zucchini blossom flowers. The family-run wine estate passed-on to the 26th generation.
A region that is timeless, every time you visit.
