Memorable Wine

Château Haut-Brion 1981 and Château d'Yquem 1989. It's a tie.


First Wine

Probably a cheap Chianti enclosed in straw


Unusual Wine Experience

In a village in the heart of Chianti Classico, locals invited us to a feast and Bepe served us his homemade wine that tasted like mushrooms.


Current Fav Wine

La Spinetta Ca'di Pian 2008
