We've had a second serendipitous business event in Rome including a breakfast meeting with Andrea DiCurzio from Luca Maloni SRL, who we've since found out is the Italian Robert Parker. After a detour south to see Pompeii, we are in Venice now and once again next door to Harry's Bar. We've only looked in so far and plan to stop in for the obligatory Bellini's tonight. We've also been sampling the incredible range of Limoncello's. And, we've discovered the variations in the way "Spritz"is served...from a wine cocktail all the way to a long drink...last night's version being the strangest...heavy on the orange, served in a tall glass with ice and garnished with an orange and an olive...strange. At the end of the day, though, I think I've become a Negroni addict.
