It was in 1970 and was a Chianti Classico from a long forgotten vinyard
purchased at a liquor store in Washington DC (14th street? or G? or
maybe I am hallucinating but the address was part of the store's name,
da Beppe will know I am sure) This stuff was just so much nicer than the
Mateus, Blue Nun, Taylor Tawny Port I was drinking at the time (Hey, I
was in the Army, Blue Nun was pretty swanky)
