Connie Wilson, bookkeeper says: I have fond memories of biking atop the fortress walls of the medieval Italian city of Lucca without worrying about crazy Italian drivers - just the occasional stroller or engrossed lovers to dodge. Then a quick stroll into the circular Piazza Anfiteatro to enjoy a delicious lunch or scrumptious gelato. Ahh, springtime in Italy is the best!
The Rosso delle Colline Lucchesi from Fattoria di Fubbiano would be a first pick of mine for an Italian meal. The winery is located in the hills north of Lucca, in a beautiful area dotted with small farms producing excellent wine and olive oil. The 2012 Rosso is 85% Sangiovese and 15% Canaiolo, a blend widely recognized among the most representative of the Colline Lucchesi wines. It is fresh and fruity with loads of flavor – molto delizioso!

The Estate also produces award-winning extra virgin olive oil and conducts wine and oil tastings. There is a villa and farmhouse available for rent as well, to make your Tuscan visit complete!
