Maybe “What’s new?” isn’t the best way to frame the conversation. We go from Frascati, to Verdicchio to Galestro. Galestro? Who even thinks about that wine anymore? But once upon a time it was billed as the next best thing. And then Pinot Grigio came along.
We move from Gavi to Greco, Catarratto to Carricante, all the while looking over the horizon for the next pretty thing.
It’s a strange thing, what is it we are really looking for?
In another conversation with a journalist, and the talk about a wine cellar. A wine cellar, something very few people have or want. Still, we talk about such things when wine lovers get together. Antonio Galloni just did a cellar primer for folks starting to collect. Want to find out about someone in the wine business? Look at their collection, whether it is in a cellar or not. It will tell you many things about the person.
