A second bottle of the Sicilian Vino was a good choice as we sat and watched the world go by in the southern island of Italy. That wine was very enjoyable as the sun came out as we turned up the notch on life’s relax mode.
Suffice to say now after two bottles of really good red, two entrees and a pizza we are not in the mood to ...
