What’s For Sipper, Do Bianchi?

In the 3rd installment of What’s For Sipper?, I dive into the philological brain of one Mr. Jeremy Parzen. I first met Jeremy back in March in Asti when he so kindly invited me to join him and some other rockstar wine dudes for a Barbera extravaganza. I became one of the Barbera 7. And my life changed. No- not really. But we had one hell of a fun time. He continues to impress with his linguistic acumen, musical skills, undying love for wife Tracie P. and knowing actually everything about Italian wine. I bow down to you.

    odd, I was just sipping on some Pichierri Terrarossa Primitivo ’92….thinking about the roast duck we just brought back from the Chinese BBQ after a very long day…

    @Alfonso Tracie P and I tasted the current vintage the other day and it was fantastic!
