We’re still in a daze from our travel day and just being in this beautiful place, but for dinner we walked down the street to a recommended restaurant, Osteria Gattavecchi. It’s behind the Santa Maria church in an old monastery. We sat outside with beautiful sunset views and drank the house wine, which was the family’s Vino Nobile, THE type of famous wine in Montepulciano. Our waiter, Maurtizio, said his family has had a winery in the region since 1952. It was wonderful! For dinner we had homemade taglietelli noodles cooked in Vino Nobile with a pork cream sauce. Molto buono! They’d also just concluded a cooking class, and we got to taste the one last egg with ricotta and asparagus, fried. I think I might become a foodie! And our dinner was so inexpensive, I couldn’t help but leave a large tip.
