I’ve been traveling around the country – Houston, San Francisco, New York, Boston, Chicago – with the Consorzio Tutela Morellino di Scansano DOCG. While I think it’s not serious of me to write about the wines that we showcased, I do feel that I can write about some of the great people I met on my travels these past two weeks. I’ll start with Chicago and a Tuscan Foodie, Michele Barsanti.
I met Michele yesterday and immediately was interested in his blog concept, an Italian who likes American food. Check it out. Today I read a post on his blog that truly warmed my heart, an ode to something I hold dear as well but I’ll let you read it rather than have me ruin the surprise. Michele is from Pisa and having lived with a Florentine for many years, I had heard a lot about Pisani but have never spent much time in Pisa apart from a few touristy days.
What I did see of Pisa was stunning – the Campo Santo, the tower and the Church.
Tuscany has and always well hold a huge piece of my heart, as it does for so many who have spent time there. I always feel that it was a gift to be able to live beneath the Boboli gardens in Via Romana for some years.
Pisa is a beautiful and often overlooked city. I will post some pictures tomorrow but I did want to point out one of the interesting people I met during my travels.
