“…lightly, softly, go yourself, to Tuscany…” – Guido Cavalcanti
It took me over a week to fall asleep without earplugs when I moved into my apartment in Sant’Angelo in Colle, a tiny hamlet close to Montalcino in Tuscany (Siena province) where I lived for nearly 3 months. My beautiful top floor (just a 3 floor walk up) apartment was directly across from the church whose bells would chime on the hour all night long.

This recipe is a twist on the classic recipe which is usually served cold with lemon and capers. I’ve made some changes to better accompany the rich flavors of our Brunnello di Montalcino, adding rich Marscapone to give it body and omitting the lemon.
