Behind every great design there is a story, or shall I say history...
Stripes have never really been popular with my personal fashion statement, but after a trip to Paris I find myself drawn to the classic French stripes. In March of 1858 the French Government made a historical design choice in the way of fashion, a knit shirt adorned with navy and white stripes. This simple design is a timeless wardrobe staple. Simple, pure design!
In the exquisitely beautiful area of Chanti you might happen upon a small family owned winery.... Azienda Agricola Poggio Amorelli. The Mazzarrini Family takes pride in what they produce, wines, cheeses, oils, no matter what the product your destine to fine something to enjoy!
Vermentino IGT Maremma 2010 - This is a dry white wine, gold in hue, with a floral aroma. This would be great with a light seafood dish.
Morellino Di Scansano DOCG 2010 - I sense a hint of berry, raspberry or cherry. Its earthy to the nose with a sweet finish. This would be great with a nutty cheese.
Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva 2009 - Aged for a year in oak! This is a smooth, velvet wine and good to drink immediately or age for 20-30 years.... if you can wait :o).
Strolling through the streets of Firenze I stumbled upon a shop, it wasn't just any shop... It was a collection of craftsmanship like I"d never seen before, Museo Bottega Del Maestro Alessandro Dari. Master Dari is a true messenger of design. His spiritual gift comes forth like a glorious storm crashing at your senses. His work is exquisite, with an elevated level of detail. His designs are complex and elaborate.It is very clear that Master Dari has an exceptional gift.
For more about Mr. Dari's work and background please visit his website!
