Berger on wine: In praise of perfectly aged Italian wines

Published Wednesday March 8

…so I opened for us a great bottle of a 12-year-old barbera from Giacomo Bologna.)

Some people may find this hard to believe, but I began to buy wines that I did not like or understand based on the passion of 3 people who did not know each other but were really persuasive.

It was the early 1970s, and after chatting with these people numerous times, it was pretty evident that I was missing an opportunity if I didn’t buy a bunch of this stuff, and simply put them away in my “cellar.”

Since I had hollowed out a small cave under the property I bought in late 1973, and since I only had about 3 cases of wine at that point, I began buying young red Italian wines.
