Here I am, again. Even if today I have not much to tell you…
Do not think that I am bored or that I am a boring person, what I am saying is that I don’t have exciting things to tell you today…
You know, I have a special affection for you!
Last night I was in a very good restaurant in Florence, at a private party organized by some friends of my daughter Rachel.
Unfortunately the nightlife in Florence it is not usually so exciting, but I enjoyed last night. The food was very good, Nobu style, a less monotonous Japanese, I believe the chef worked at Nobu.
Then, around midnight, music, music and music.
At first I just liked to watch people dancing, but then I got involved and I joined the rhythm. Lupo was watching from under the table, like a child who does not approve father’s folly… After a while he crouched into a long sleep without being disturbed by the music!
The only problem was the wine, I have not yet told you that I am semi teetotaler, perhaps it is better to say that I do not like strong alcohol. I prefer champagne and red wine, the good ones!
Last night we had a red wine from Piedmont, considered among the best. I was mulling the evening when I remembered to have a couple bottles of red Cavalli wine in the car!
I don’t want to advertise, I do not need that, but I want to tell you about my special red wine, a creation of Tommaso, the second of my children.
After graduation, Tommy expressed the desire to breed the racehorses I own for several years.
Tommy decided to move into the beautiful countryside house we have at Panzano in Chianti and devote his life entirely to horses.
It is then that I discovered that love and passion are the most important elements to succeed in what you do!
The farm, “Degli Dei” (that’s the name) with only few brood mare, has given us very good racehorses and a lot of fun.
The acquaintance of one of the best Italian winemakers turned on the passion for wine in Tommaso and the desire to experiment with new varieties. The wait was long but the good results have arrived! The small production makes this wine even more special to us. Tommaso devoted his life to this!
Now the horses are jealous and not longer champions!
Returning to the dinner…
The two bottles of my wine are disappeared in a few minutes at the expense of good wines from Piedmont who lorded over the tables!
Fiorentina have won and so now we breathe a sigh of relief.
The fear of a recession in B series has faded away.
I just finished preparing my bags and tomorrow I am leaving for NEW YORK!
My dear friends, tomorrow I will write my first adventures from the plane.
A big kiss.
I LOVE YOU
