After Siena, we made our way to Castellina in the Chianti region of Italy. It was not a long drive to get to our destination, but every corner we turned was so beautiful we stopped a lot.
We did one winery tour where the wine master used the word Allora. I had heard the word a few times on our trip, but not in the way it rolled off his tongue. I politely asked during the wine tasting what it meant, not being proficient in English, it took him a while to explain what it meant… others in the tasting helped him along. The word Allora is a filler word, well, so, and then, moving on. Seemed so basic, but the way he pronounced it was elegant.
