Chianti Classico Docg – Vintage May 2011
One could almost say, that Kirsty & Ross eloped to get married in a tiny Chianti village…with their best friends and closest family! The scenery around their perfect day was a tiny village of Radda in Chianti and the even tinier ancient village of Volpaia, one of the most well preserved medieval castle villages in Tuscany, that is still today alive and active, producing excellent Chianti wines. The civil wedding ceremony was celebrated in the beautiful town hall of Radda in Chianti, in an open courtyard, right in middle of the town. After the ceremony the guests had a glass of Chianti wine in a lovely spot just down the road, in Bottega, a small local wine bar, with a grand wine list. Then off to the lovely medieval town, a short drive from Radda, where Carla and her family, owners of one of the oldest restaurants in Tuscany, were waiting for the wedding party to arrive. The newly wed couple had some pictures taken with the wedding photographer, Massino Bonon, in the stunning Chianti nature, driving the winding country roads in a cool red MG and joined the guests for the welcome aperitifs in the restaurant garden. The dinner was served inside the restaurant lovely rustic main hall, accompanied by some live music. Unforgettable day in Chianti Classico.
