If you have the time you should visit the Accademia Buon Gusto in Panzano. But if you have only limited time - just ask for a quick wine recommendation and skip the tastings. Panzano is a very small town in Tuscany - in the wine region that produces some great Italian red wines, and is a short driving distance from Siena, Montepulciano, Greve, Radda, etc. There is not much to do in Panzano except enjoy the views, eat and drink wine. Stefano Salvadori has set up a small shop devoted to expanding the knowledge of Tuscan wines. He puts on a great show and imparts significant wine knowledge while you taste (for free) up to 12 or so wines. The pours are good sized and the wine is pretty good too. Stefano's wife works at a nearby winery. There is no pressure to purchase any of the numerous wines you taste. One can tell how passionate Stefano is about the wines, and if you have the time it is really an enjoyable experience. Again, if you have limited time - you can skip the wine presentation and just purchase a bottle or two of some very good Tuscan wine. jr
