Apparently the Romans liked to drink wine. Of course, this comes as no surprise to me, being part Italian. It’s just in you to drink a little (relatively speaking) of the grape. I even remember reading in Livy that the Romans chased 3,000 amphorae of wine across the Mediterranean that belonged to their enemy. They even abandoned their allies, who were under siege, to go get it!
That’s true love if there ever is such a thing.

I think this should inspire us all to go grab a chianti classico and take it easy for a day.
Or write a microcuento:

If you don’t know what the “flor” is, go look up how Spanish sherry is made!
