It’s time for some creamy, delicious gelato. I wonder which flavors I should choose – there are so many possibilities. And I also have to consider what are good combinations.
When I was in San Gimignano I was looking for a place to get gelato when I saw this sign:
I had to investigate and see for myself. A gelato shop that wins an award like this must be visited immediately. There was a line that went beyond the entrance door, but this made me even more convinced there must be exceptional gelato if people were willing to wait outside in the rain. It was windy so I was glad I had my poncho. Finally it was my turn to order. I had carefully studied all the choices and decided on Nutella and crème brulee. I wish I’d taken a picture of my gelato cone but I ate it too fast. However here’s a picture of the napkins.
For the rest of the time I was in Italy I went to other gelato shops, but it was hard to forget the perfection of the gelato in San Gimignano. This wasn’t actually a problem because I like gelato wherever I go. Still, I’d like to go back and taste it again so I can set the standard impossibly high for others to try to match.
