About a week ago I wrote about the scandal that was going on with Brunello di Montalcino wines and, as promised, I am here to update you on what is going on with that. In a recent article by The Associated Press it was stated that a panel of experts has been selected to investigate the suspicious wine. In case you don't remember why this wine is suspicious, go back and read my earlier post. The panel has been set up by the Agricultural Ministry and the Minister, Luca Zaia, hopes that this will "relaunch the most prestigious Made in Italy brand." Well, I hope so too. As much as we all want to be the next big thing, you never want to see a legend crumble right before your eyes. Like in the movies, when the main character does everything you and they know they shouldn't do, and the whole time you are just sitting there, thinking to yourself, "Why?" Every move they makes you just cringe and you are just hoping they can pull it all together (even though you know they will...come one's the movies)

Anyways, enough of my tangent. I want to send my best wishes to Brunello di Montalcino, and I hope the whole affair goes down smoothly. I like the way my laid back summer is going, so let's keep it that way!

And no worries, I will let everyone know when I know what happens!
