What a wonderful day!

We were picked up by Hilary on time, and she gave us a brief history of Italy and why all the foods are different everywhere one travel in Italy! On the way out to meet Francesca and Choco (our truffle hunting guides), Hilary, who is a sommelier, gave us background on the different varieties of truffles and the characteristics of the Chianti Classico. Francesca’s family home is beautiful, and we spent time meeting Choco and doing some searching for truffles. Truffles found, we went back and had a lovely meal with truffles in every course. In the afternoon, we went to a Chianti wine estate and tasted differing ages of Chianti and a Supertuscan. Hilary showed us how to taste the wines and experience their best qualities. The wines were very good, and some were purchased! On the way back to Florence, Hilary gave us tips on the San Giovanni festival the next day in Florence and where to get some excellent gelato - very good gelato! It was a wonderful day, and I would highly recommend this trip.
