North to Tuscany

We found the pasta and the Italy we were looking for just outside of Florence. Mangiacane Vineyards could be the most perfect place on earth. It overlooks el Duomo in Florence and the vines that make their delicious Chianti. The estate was built by Machiavelli's uncle and the hospitality was second to none.

We also hit Banfi Vineyards south of Mangiacane. The estate was more impressive, but the personal touch wasn't the same. Here are a few shots of Baby Lavoie on the grounds.
