Saint Martino Assaggiare il Vino

The harvest of the grapes is over and the wine has been sitting in a cool dark place for almost two months. The day of Saint Martino, November 11th, is the day when people have the first tasting of the wine. It is customary to accompany the wine with roasted castagna(chestnuts) and bread. I have to say that this years harvest was a good one, our wine has a nice taste. Every meal from now on, we will enjoy the flavour!
