#panizzipeople 13: Guido Corsi
What's your job at Panizzi?
I am a tractor driver.
What is the skill that those who do your job cannot absolutely lack?
Nice weather! And a nice little radio on the tractor. As long as we are productive and don't get distracted it's ok to listen to it, right, boss?
What do you like the most about your work?
I like the harvest because it pays out for the work we have done.
What did you do before working at Panizzi?
I used to be a lumberjack and a charcoal burner, with my father. We are natives of San Gimignano, and our work, which made us very proud, lasted for two whole generations.
What do you do in your free time? What are your passions?
I rest. I also have a garden and a piece of land that I love to cultivate, but this is also hard work and I need a lot of time to recharge.
What is your favorite Panizzi wine?
The very best one is Vernaccia Riserva. Simply fantastic: the barrique gives it a unique perfume and a very special taste. We all do a meticulous job in the vineyard and you can understand the result by drinking this excellent wine.
What is your favorite place at Panizzi?
Il Caggio, a locality part of Larniano. I have been a lover of this special corner since the year 2000, when I first saw it . The vineyards, the landscape, the incredible view. Somebody pointed me there and told me: "Go down this hill, you'll find some vineyards and a beautiful landscape" When I arrived I was literally speechless.
What is your favorite place in San Gimignano?
For me La Rocca is simply wonderful, it's the highest point of San Gimignano. I also love Torre Grossa, which offers a wonderful view. It is the tallest tower in the city and it is located in Piazza del Duomo. It is a key point in the city that leaves no one indifferent.
