Melide - Verbania 170 km
This is an odd one with a potentially complicated finish. A massively hard climb and a technical descent to the finish.

Try try and try again, persistence wins in the end. (More likely: "lesson is, never try").
Amy's Food & Wine
Wine: Castello di Neive Grignolino
I love these Northern reds. Flowers and red fruits. This is one to drink again soon.
Food: La Tur:
a dense, creamy blend of pasteurized cow, goat and sheep milk. Runny and oozing around the perimeter with a moist, cakey, palette-coating paste, its flavor is earthy and full.
