Alfonso and I decided to take a staycation for lunch today..surrounded by our photos and a warm mushroom risotto made with a glass of 90 C Wine from our experience at Livernano in the heart of Chianti. The wine is a refreshing Chardonnay that is the ‘brainchild’ of award winning winemaker Gudrun Cuillo and Sommelier Virginia Philip. Here I am with Gudrun at Casalvento….
So we were able to ‘get away’ to the heart of Chianti today ..if only from our kitchen here in Abruzzo, and 90C wine and photos and our memories…it was a great afternoon lunch trip..
Not everyone can get to Livernano in the hear of Chianti, but you can take a Livernano experience in your own kitchen by savoring this extraordinary wine, give your mind and stomach a relaxing afternoon..
