Panzanello Winery, Panzano in Chianti, Tuscany, Italy. June 2015.

I realized that I didn’t really have a category for posts about vineyards and countrysides, chateaus, villas, etc., so I thought I’d put them together in an altogether new category, “estates“, because they’re not all museums, and they don’t always fit under monuments or architecture…so that’s the best that I could come up with so far. Might change it once I think of something better, but right now I’m drawing blanks, so it’ll have to do 😐

My friend and I joined a Chianti day tour via Smart Trip (terrible tour company though–disorganized and overbooked), and our first stop was in Panzano in Chianti where we visited the Panzanello Winery.

The only thing this place has going for it is really its location. What views! But as for the wine, I’m no expert but nothing really tasted that great, which I expected because we were on a budget tour and everything they served us seemed very young and needed some more time to age.
