I ran into this woman at the Wine House in Los Angeles by chance. She was asking Lance, the wine buyer if he knew where she could find this "great wine a friend of mine brought to dinner last night" and on her phone was a picture of the Cirelli Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2011 Anfora! Turns out it was out of her usual price range, but she bought it anyway! She was so excited about it that I had to get a video of her for Francesco.

I stole these images from the Luigi Baudana website that is still under construction. But the photos are beautiful.
