Waiting For Harvest II
I finally finished the second Waiting For Harvest piece and an addition to my Wine Series. Again it is the same size as the first one (16 X 12) which was Pinot Grigio grapes from the Castello di Colognoli vineyards in Greve, Italy (which is in Tuscany). These were Sangiovese grapes to be used for their Chianti wine that the family makes at the castle. And one of my favorite red wines. What attracted me to this cluster of grapes was the large knobby vine and it was so large you knew the age of Tuscany was inside and out. They were very sweet to eat and I believe were harvested just after we left in late Sept. 2009.
This will probably be the last of my wine series as I begin work on a commission piece for a client, that I will post after Christmas so I don't give away any surprises.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving Holiday everyone and have some wine it's good for your Heart! Red Wine that is.
