I am a banker for more than half of my day, and a serial wine swirler (…) in the evening. I love wines and whatever is linked to this fabulous world. When I was kid with my cousins, we were used to play in the vineyards and then jump on the grapes, after the harvest, to extract the divine juice. Then I grow up, despite drinking terrible homemade Primitivo and Negroamaro produced proudly by mum’s uncle every year. When the capitalism arrived also in my town, I had the opportunity to try regularly nectars from other Italian regions. Then I have started travelling by my own and uncorking whatever I wanted. I tasted amazing Pinot Noir at -30C, gone through Russian tanks to taste fabulous brandies, spent lecherous weekend in Champagne, felt in love with Langhe area and toasted with local wines in all European countries. In the meantime, I have wanted to learn even more and I studied for the WSET level 2 and 3 exams here in London.
I have created Cosivino to share with you my opinions about wines commonly available in the supermarkets. I try to do it in an easygoing and not too serious way. As said already in this forum, wine is pure joy and emotion. Only a fool (or a charlatan) can claim to schematize and make impartial judgments on the sensations that only the divine nectar can donate to us. Salute! Santé! Cheers! Prosit! За здоровье! 敬酒! 乾杯!
