One of the highlights of the year in Italy is when the new olive oil arrives in stores. This oil is from one of my favorite places in the area of Porciano – Toscana Twist. This is where we go to buy wine and breadsticks, taking our own empty bottles to be filled with wine from casks.
Added to the pleasure of buying new olive oil today, the owner of the store offered us an aperitif and joined us. We had one of those conversations in two languages that are so oddly satisfying (although I look forward to the day I can participate in Italian).
