What excellent red wine should my partner buy in Italy to bring home that he can't get here? We're fans of Luigi Righetti Amarone, but we can, uh, get it in Toronto. Seems silly to fly it home. Likes: dry, full-bodied, spicy. also enjoy dry pinot noirs (lighter body). Dislikes: sweet, fruity, herbal Price: up to $100/bottle, but that would have to be out of this world amazing.
Good inexpensive family apartments for rent inland from Ancona, Italy in end-October? Need some assistance. [more inside]
