Frank, Alberto & Giuseppe relaxing after lunch


Frank, Alberto & Giuseppe

Many memorable food experiences are the ones which were not planned and happened in a “natural” way, just like today: Alberto Aiello (Graci estate) called me to have lunch together and we ended up at Giuseppe Russo’s home (Girolamo Russo estate), tasting different bottles, from Rieslings, Pinot Noir from South Africa, Giuseppe’s A’Rina 2006 to finish lunch with a bottle of vintage Champagne. A treat.
The warmth in these days here pulled us outside on Giuseppe’s terrace where we finished a beautiful bottle of Contini’s Vernaccia di Oristana as well as a barrel sample of Giuseppe’s San Lorenzo 2011 which probably is the best San Lorenzo produced so far!

A memorable and simple lunch amongst good friends.
