Their charter states - regarding grape growing - "exempts de tous produits chimiques, de synthèses et moléculaires." I only wish that were true. Alas, it is pretty much impossible to grow V. vinifera grapes in Europe and not treat for powdery and downy mildew.

Yes. Agreed. I find it interesting that the acceptance of copper sulfate is just accepted but people are trying to use sprays of kaolin and whey, sometimes it works, and sometimes.......no.

I am so delighted that you have included an Italian from my region, Lazio! A fine choice, indeed. May I suggest the beautiful wines of Paolo Bea (Umbria)? The best wines I have ever had.

I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
