Sunshine - rosť time
At last, a nice Sunday when we can enjoy an outdoor lunch - accompanied by
that most pleasant of compromises between red and white, a proper rosť wine.
This Sicilian 'rosato' by Feudi Bordonaro of Branciforti is made the hard
way, using only red grapes of the Sangiovese variety... rather than by
blending together some mix of pre-prepared red and white wines.
All that being said, as a 'non tradizionale' product, the official system
of classification only allows it to be rated as a second-tier IGT....
Santa Maria Capua Vetere
For pictures from a visit to the amphitheatre in the town where
.. and we were far from alone...
....at the Procession of the 'Misteri', over on Procida this Good Friday morning!
Crowds following a parade of elaborate religious tableau that illustrate bible
stories, as staged on the island of Procida each year.
Another from the 'Misteri'
George's dragon, one of the tableau from the Good Friday procession.
The beach at Easter
Four people in the sea as we sat having lunch.... indeed all sorts to make a world!
