One good thing about an early season blizzard in Central Italy is that once the storm blows out the weather can be pretty nice, even warm. This photo is courtesy of my neighbor, Michael, a fine photographer. I'm not sure which day he snapped it. It may have been on Thanksgiving day when the snow let up for a few hours and the sun came streaming through. As for us, we headed to the coast on Saturday to visit the Capecci clan, makers of some of the finest Marchigiani wines I've ever tasted including my favorite white, the Pecorino. We got to stroll around the hills in little more than sweaters and t-shirts as a warm wind kicked off the nearby Adriatic. Afterwards, we went into the tiny community of San Savino for a fantastic Marchigiani meal that had even the Romans among us swooning. A good time was had by all... until, that is, later that night when we started playing cards.
