Italian wine summer

No other country in Europe bears such an immense history along with the huge variety of food, grape varieties and breathtaking landscapes as does Bella Italia. This summer I was lucky to visit this beautiful country twice (well, actually 3 times, but one was just a race through Florence museums)..
