The challenge of the rione in Panicale

The Torre and the Grifo came face to face today for the Palio di Bacco in Panicale. Torre 
( blue & red) and Grifo ( red & yellow) marched into the piazza and presented their challenge to the opposition. The tamburini, drummers, enlivened the occasion with their beat but the cheers, whistles, horns and flares of the two rione left no doubt that the challenge was on.
At the conclusion they went off to do battle and we went off to visit Madrevite for the celebration of the launch on their 2015 gamay wine.
