Some Snapshots of the city of #Siena

Ciao friends!

A couple of weeks ago we had the chance of visiting the wonderful city of Siena. An amazing city in Italy’s central Tuscany, distinguished by its medieval brick buildings. 

The fan-shaped Piazza del Campo is dominated by the Palazzo Pubblico, the Gothic town hall, and Torre del Mangia, a slender 14th-century tower with sweeping views from its distinctive white crown. From this square at the center of town extend the city’s 17 historic wards, here are some of the pictures we snapped.

 Enjoy !

Interesting Gourmet  #Burger in #Salerno 

On a rainy Monday night, we planned to go out with friends and try this spot located in Salerno city center, after reading a few reviews buzzing about their gourmet burgers. The location was quite cozy and also surprisingly busy on a Monday night, which is a natural sign that they are doing things right. 

The menu offers an endless variety of combinations to satisfy everyone’s taste. There is in fact the possibility of choosing different kinds of buns (we opted for  all-wheat and black, made with grano saraceno) a wide range of patties including black angus, pork, the famous juicy lucy, chicken, and a vegitarian option. The possibility of customization goes way further with different choices of toppings, cheeses, sauces, and side orders. The choices of drinks is also wide, we tried an artisan lager and we don’t regret our pick. We would recommend you pay these guys a visit next time you’re in Salerno, Italy. ( For further information we refer you to their official website burgerbaritalia.com )

   

   

Enjoy!

Let a sip of Piedirosso DOC take you to the Island of Ischia

Tonight’s wine glass is indeed a tastefully Piedirosso DOC 2013 from the island of Ischia, in the bay of Naples in southern Italy.

  

The Ischia DOC is part of south-west Italy’s Campania region, located as mentioned on the island of Ischia (the largest of the Phlegrean islands) in the Bay of Naples. Its vine heritage dates back to 700 BC, and in Roman times the island was called Enaria, meaning land of wines. Despite many setbacks over the years, the wines made there have not lost their appeal, offering immense richness and aromatics that have distinguished them in international wine markets. Thanks to the well-drained, fertile volcanic soils, cool sea breezes which temper the heat, and the altitude (more than 600 feet), the vines are in their element. Although the island is fairly small and vineyards are generally located on terraces, the wine produced is of high quality.

The DOC wines which bear the name of the island are made in seven different styles: white, sparkling white, red, Biancolella, Forestera, Piedirosso .

Reds like the one we’re drinking tonight, are dominated by the Guarnaccia and Piedirosso grapes (the latter is locally known as Per’e Palummo, translated as pigeon’s foot because of the shape and color of the vine’s. The wines produced from this variety tend to have good tannins and alcohol content, and as they mature, they take on fragrant violet notes with some gamey overtones. Their pair wonderfully with red meats and cheeses that have been aged for long period of time. Whilst drinking this wine our memory also goes to an amazing trip to this beautiful island, we hopefully can take you there with some of the pictures we took and a sip of this delicious red wine.
