Ticciaia Gaga

Dear Torby and Sandra,

First, I would like to thank you for inviting me to another of your fine dinner parties.

After what happened last time, I certainly did not expect another chance. Everyone should be so fortunate to have such understanding friends.

And now, once again, I must apologize for what transpired on Saturday night. While I realize excuses are generally meaningless, I hope you'll bear with me while I attempt to explain myself.

I did not realize The Duchess would be attending again. There was no way you could have known about our turbulent affair that followed your last party. Her goiter turned out to be a great, swollen beacon of salty romance. Who knew? Alas, our love was not meant to last. We parted ways when my Alien Hand (Righty, as you undoubtedly recall) saw fit to reach for a maternity mannequin at a department store in an unfortunately provocative way.

The Duchess was understandably displeased to see me on that day. I don't blame her for throwing the soup tureen. My Alien Hand was ostensibly irritated by the ambush and, as sometimes happens, reacted. The victim, as you know, was your Ticciaia Chianti. And The Duchess. And your fainting couch. But mainly the Ticciaia Chianti.

I'm sorry, Torby. I'm sorry, Sandra.

I hope we can meet again soon.

Casa Sola

Location:
Barberino, Italy

Casa Sola, one of the ancient toponyms of the area, is situated in the municipality of Barberino Val d’Elsa in an ideal central position to use as a base for exploring all of Tuscany.  Among vineyards, forest and olive groves, Casa Sola is located in the heart of Chianti Classico area where the scenery is as beautiful and uncontaminated as it was ages ago. In the town of Barberino (at approximately 30km from Florence, 28km from Siena and 90km from Pisa), Casa Sola covers a total area of 120 hectares, of which 30 are vineyards and 40 are olive groves. The remaining terrain is made up of
fields and forests which help to create an enchanting view… quiet and green.

The company’s offices and reception are located in the center of the property at the main villa: here you will find us at your disposal to help you discover Casa Sola, its products, its charm and its surrounding areas.

On the side of the offices is the heart of our company: you can find the fermentation and aging cellars. Here passion, experience, tradition and innovation are devoted to the constant striving to  obtain the maximum potential from our grapes.

On two hills equidistant from the company center, immersed between cypresses and olive trees, the Poderi Montarsiccio and Ticciaia emerge – splendid colonial houses which have been renovated and equipped for a pleasant farm stay. The beauty of the spot and the breathtaking views which can be enjoyed at Casa Sola allow our guests to indulge in full relaxation in the life and the culture of Chianti.
