Since we’ve been here in Italy, we’ve tried a lot of wine. And we’ve found a lot of good wine! I didn’t like wine very much before we came here, but now I appreciate it in a different way. Now I can really tell the young wines that are more like juice from the more complex wines. There is nothing quite like tasting a fabulous new wine!
I also love all of the enoteche (wine shops) and grocery store shelves and window displays (like this one) that are filled with so much wine. It’s such a part of the culture here. And when you buy wine in a nice shop, they wrap it beautifully for you or, really nice wines, come in these boxes. I really want one of these wine boxes, I have no idea what for, but I want one!
