The road narrows and climbs all the way to Valdinievole and the town Lamporecchio; a delicious place to stop, especially in August when the Brigidino festival is going on. A brigidino is a warm and crispy wafer with hints of anise and it's impossible to eat just one! The fair takes place along the main roads of town on the first Tuesday in August as well as the following Wednesday.
Now, we enter the woods and keep a steady speed along the many curves. Salvino hosts views of the terraced vineyards of Chianti Docg, while from Fornello the road changes name from SP13 to SP9 of Montalbano. This is where the special Pistoia rally used to be held. It's a great ride and worth every kilometer.
