Paulo, that all looks fantastic! I'm going to have an Italian dinner with my mom (homemade, not out) soon. I think that some copies of these may show up on the menu, especially the prunes.

I have been drinking Ch. Bonnet for a while now. I am glad to see that it is still inexpensive. I hope that it stays that way. Good stuff, that is.

Yeah I meant caffe Poliziano. It was a little chilly to eat on the balcony [we went in November], but we were right next to the window so we had the effect, anyway.

Montepulciano was wonderful. We did three days there and three days in Rome and if/when we return to Italy we've made up our minds to stay in a small town like Montepulciano for the whole week.

I wasn't even experienced enough to call myself wine novice when we were there, so I can't even give any thoughts on the wine, only that I drank a lot of it and it was all wonderful. Drank mostly house wines since my wife wasn't drinking and it was available in 1/2 liters.

Can't wait to return. We stopped in Umbria on the way to Rome and will probably to that [including Assisi] when we return. Glad you're having a good time.
