Roberto is the greatest! He customized a fantastic day tour of Tuscany wine and olive growers for us in the Chianti Classico region. It was a spectacular day! As we grow and produce wine and olive oil, our expectations were quite high. Roberto met them on all accounts. Molte grazie!! Next trip (with Roberto!) two days into the Montalcino-Montepulciano region!
