The star of my family home is the glorious garden terracing the hillside above a small Tuscan village near Florence. The heady night-blooming Jasmine, trailing the Loggia is combined with the tart, juicy notes of blackcurrant leaves in the fruit cage behind the house……. Netted and fenced to keep the roaming wild boars getting to the sun-ripened fruit before we do. If I could bottle an Italian summer evening then this would be it…….
