“Amici e vini vogliono essere vecchi.”
“Friends and wine want to grow old.”
With age, a wine grows and becomes something completely different from its starting point. With age, a wine reaches its full potential, making it ready to be enjoyed at its prime. With age, a wine can be fully realized, thanks to the process which has taken it there. This is true of friendship as well. Now not all wines can be aged, and not all friendships can be savored.
So, what makes for a lasting companion? Resiliency. Here’s to a long last Sangiovese-type friendship!
