I landed in Rome at about 7 Saturday morning. It took over an hour to go through customs and then almost another hour to pick up my rental Abarth spider with just 3500 km on it. Sure I'd reserved it in advance, but still, I was surprised when they gave it to me. I immediately put the top down and hit the road!
It took me about 2.5 hours to drive over to Danilo's by lake Trasimeno but my GPS worked well and I had no trouble.
Danilo had to run out to am appointment so we toasted my arrival quickly and then I had about an hour to try to not pass out from lack of sleep.
Danilo got back and it was into the winery!
It was tine to press all the Colorino grapes after their initial fermentation on the skins.
It was a long process of scooping up buckets of fermenting grapes and dumping them into the ancient basket press. Then we'd press them enough to make some room in the press and add more. At the end we were almost totally out of room but we managed to press it all without having to empty the must from the basket press.
