TOURISM IN THE CHIANTI
THE SECRET REVEALED
The typical countryside of the sourrounding of Barberino Val d'Elsa: olive trees and vineyards
Also very tipical the cypress tree
This is how the grapes are on the 25 of August 2002 quite ready even if we had too much rain this summer and the wine can't be very good.
As suggestion when you go to the restaurant avoid the 2002 year for your bottle of wine. Very good is the 1997.
Olive trees on the way to Petrognano
This little nice agricoltural village is is near the middle aged village of Barberino Val d'Elsa. To reach it from Barberino go in the direction of Poggibonsi and Siena and at the end of the village of Barberino Val d'Elsa take the road on the right and go on for about 2 Km and you reach this nice Pearl.
