Green and abundantly forested.

Hello Mentor. Once the characteristic of Elba were the vineyards. Many of those forests in the lower elevations were vineyards. Then, tourism has replaced the wine business.
However in the pano you can still see some vineyards. The wine of Elba is not widely known outside the island, but, for my taste, it is excellent.

I completely agree. The Elba Rosso is always the first thing to buy when we enter the island. Another tradition is that we usually forget to pack the cork-screwer. But luckily Italian Coop markets are very well equipped :-)

Thanks for continuing the series - this gives me a much more realistic view and I understand the opposition to the comment onm your last pano. Cheers, Martin

@ Christoph: more or less I do the same thing ;-)
@Martin: as I remember, it was the first time I disagree with you ;-)
