L'Eroica 2013 experience - Part 4 of 5

Our last training ride before L'Eroica would be to Montalcino. In 2010, torrential rain made it one of the toughest stages in Giro d'Italia. It was to be our longest ride and our legs were no where to be found. The picturesque landscape was a sight to behold though. There was only a 15 degree climb. Only.

All pain was forgotten when we had the pleasure to visit an artisan wine maker, Nostra Vita. Scrumptious food was served together with one of the best wines in the region. It was sweet reward for riding 55 kilometers, which also brought us 1000 meters closer to the moon that day.
