Italy Carabinieri sampling Barolo WinesCurtis Marsh confesses he cannot get enough Nebbiolo, indeed more than just a passing phase, it is becoming an obsession.

It is not often that I have a preoccupation for a single variety; after all, I do purport to have a ‘wandering palate’.

    @chels I know what you mean, its hard to find good help these days. People now days just don’t have the work ethic they used to have. I mean consider whoever wrote this post, they must have been working hard to write that good and it took a good bit of their time I am sure. I work with people who couldn’t write like this if they tried, and getting them to try is hard enough as it is.

    My mom and I are looking to create a weblog comparable to this for our web site, I stumbled across your internet site trying to get some ideas on the theme and layout. I am taking some coding course while attending college and not sure if I would be capable of develop a blog like this one just yet.
