Three supermakets and a wine shop in the city center and they don't stock Martini Dry. I already accepted the tragedy I couldn't find a decent cocktail anywhere but home, Spritz mania killed the barmen,  but I'd never thought I'd have to take the underground to have a Vodka Martini on my sofa.

Yeah, I had to get the tube for a bottle of dry vermouth. I am getting nostalgic for the British Empire where you could have a great Martini in every good bar of the colonies.

I had to explain the concept of a dry Martini to a waitress a couple of weekends ago. Shameful

Actually in Rome there are very few cocktail bars, fuc**** pretencious and expensive, where the barman poses like a Beethoven of the cocktails. The last shelters are some of the bar of luxury hotels.

Haha .... as my wife and me rarely manage to drink one bottle per day, we decanted and had a glass yesterday and will continue later today .... this gorgeous vine is also testament to the suffering people of the Piemont and the nice conversation with board member "percy62" earlier .....

Viu Manent Cabernet Sauvignon 2016.

Excelled for only  $6.50.

Speaking of which, any other very good sub- $10 red wines you’d recommend?
