Caffe Florian and Prosecco
Founded 1720 in Piazza San Marco Venice
Historic watering hole for notables since Goethe, Charles Dickens,
and Marcel Proust. Casanova, (yes, that one) was a frequent customer.
The Caffe Florian was the only cafe in town to admit women and, hence,
prime hunting grounds for hungry noblemen. After celebrating its 300th birthday
in December, COVID has forced a temporary closing. Robeto Ferronato,
who has been with the Caffe since 1986 says:
"The Florian is more than just a café, it's a medicine."
Indeed. Calls for a sparkling wine from The Veneto!
From Treviso in The Veneto, this organic Prosecco (100% Glera) has aromas
of small yellow field flowers. Flavors of fresh yellow plum, not quite ripe.
Bright, fresh, hint of almond. Dry, small and persistent bubbles.
Temperature controlled stainless steel fermentation by Charmat method.
$14 at Drizly and $14.99 at Local 604 Bottle Shop
From Piedmont Wine Imports (Durham)

Meanwhile, back in Pompeii, a chariot has been unearthed.
They were having a really good time until YIKES! they weren't.
