In wine terminology, how would you describe yourself?
I would compare myself to a Spumante with a wide flow- ery and fruity bouquet – made of white fruits.
When did you first discover your appreciation for wine?
I fell in love with wine and everything about it during my first VinItaly, the most important wine exhibition in Italy.
Is your ability to taste wine a gift, like a singer’s voice?
I would say no, also because I’m not very tuneful. It’s just training.
How do you enjoy wine? With food, on its own, socially?
Every occasion is welcome, but certainly wine means sociability. A perfect match! An evening with friends, a great dish; at home or in a restaurant.
Does one need to have an understanding of the drink to fully appreciate it?
Surely an expert can understand all the nuances in a wine, but we can describe them so that everyone is able to discover them.
