If I say “Tuscany”, the first thing that comes to mind will be probably the image of a lonely covey of cypresses in a land of wavy hills, or the image of a farmhouse on a hilltop, in a bright and misty morning. Well, in this article (as in the next one) I’ll not show you the same old postcards of Tuscany, but I’m going to bring you inside the most “sacred” places of the millennial italian art of winemaking: the ancient wine cellars.
During my travel through the wonderful Tuscany, I’ve focused my attention (and my camera too) on the region of Val d’Orcia which, in my opinion, is far more amazing than the popular Chianti, both by the landscaping point of view and because it has some unique places that are particularly fascinating, by a winemaking standpoint. The entire area in the nearby of the ancient town of Montalcino is a concentrate of history and traditions. There I’ve found an example of a young winemaking company that have embraced the ancient tradition: Solaria farm.
