What happened to Al Gallopapa in Castellina?

Anyone know the fate of Al Gallopapa in Castellina? We had one of our favorite meals in Italy there in 2007 and were looking forward to a return. I guess even Michelin one-star restaurants have trouble making it. Anyone know where Tiziano is now? He was amazing.

According to a post by Tiziano Amoroso to an Italian food blog, he was the owner of Al Gallopapa, and the chef was Fabio Ugoletti. According to another blog, Ugoletti moved to a restaurant (name not disclosed) in Emilia.

I have been going to Castellina frequently recently - I think this was purely economics, yes. Some of the small towns in Chianti have been very hard hit by the "crisis" as they call it here in Italy. In Florence, there still seems to be another shop our of business every other day.
