A Note from Sergio
In Italy, luxury is less something that you can hold in your hands and more a way of life. It's not necessarily the Prada wallet, the Gucci boots or the Versace dress. It's the standard two-hour lunch that allows you to enjoy both the food you're eating and the company you're sharing. It's the care you take to dress appropriately for the event--and to do so without sacrificing comfort. It's making the time to show your son why you love football and to listen to your daughter explain how yellow and blue combine to make green. It's taking a spur-of-the-moment midnight walk because it's warm out and the air smells like everything is suddenly awake after winter's long night. It's taking pleasure in feeling good, looking good, and eating well. Luxury in Italy isn't about a brand; it's about la dolce vita, the sweet life, and it's accessible to almost everyone.Today's Featured Sections Include:
It's difficult to import the everyday practice of Italian luxury to the States, but if there is an object that embodies the practice, it's a big bottle of a gorgeous wine. Magnum bottles are not wines for a couple to share; these are expansive wines whose size, weight, and largeness convey largesse in experience, a magnanimity of spirit, and a generosity of impulse. No one buys a magnum just to share over dinner. A magnum is more than a bottle--it's a gathering, and it's perfect to show your guests that you care about them, that you want them to enjoy themselves, and that you are opening your heart, your home, and your life to them.
Today's eLetter features more than 90 big, beautiful bottles of wine, and every one of them is luxury embodied. Some are Italian; some are French; a few are from California or Spain; and all of them are gorgeous. I urge you to contact your Portfolio Manager to buy a few--some to cellar, a couple to give, and a handful to enjoy with your friends and family on Thanksgiving Day. Enjoying a beautiful wine with really good food and people you love a lot is the best way to enjoy Italian luxury here at home.
