Fresh from a 2-day Rome visit and a drive up the A-1 highway to us just south of Cortona. The Roachs and Staffords welcomed the Saturday afternoon after Amy and Michael were whisked away to the Rome Hilton. Tim and Cindy were at the Poste Vecchio on the coast for their anniversary.
Dinner at the Villa was fixed by the Louise and Nancy duo and was delicious with local ingredients remaining from Camucia farmers market.
It’s Sunday now and we are about to dive into some Rosso in the sunshine on the upper level. Today we went down to near Montalcino in Tuscany with driver Craig taking the wheel away from Chip…no complaints here.
First stop, Pienza…finally.
Lunch there, too, at a place the Staffords knew from previous visits.
Then, Patricia recommended that we go to hear the monks chant at Sant’Antimo.
