New vini from Praesidium, tasted at Vini Veri and arriving May 1st . . .


New vintage of the Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo had to be changed to a IGT because they used some vines that were out not approved for DOC status . . . uh oh!  Too bad, the wine is really good!

The new vintage of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Riserva

from a special section of the vineyard and named after their grandmother who first worked that vineyard

My next great idea . . . selling vino sfuso here in the US! Get your bottles ready . . .


You can't really see it, but it says "gradazione alcolica 10,5%"!

I would assume that is for the liter but I didn't ask . . .

VinItaly 2016 pictures . . . walking around Verona . . . .

Sushi and Japanese restaurants are all over downtown Verona.

Hamburgers are big in Italy and it seems Europe as a whole.  I didn't try any

This women's clothing shop stole my name!

But I kind of like the "Made in Italy" tagline, so I am going to steal it!
