I would spend most of my time in the Amalfi Coast and Tuscany, more specifically Montalcino. Siena is great but it's well-suited for a day trip. There are a bunch of wineries that have accommodations and I highly recommend staying at a vineyard. It was one of my highlights of my trip.

Gruner Veltliner - FX Pichler Smargard "Loibner Berg" 2011 (purchased) - Another good selection, had the right amount of residual sugar I have the '07 of this and I'll probably drink it shortly. Nice wines.
Congrats, David. Nice press.

Who has been? Reports would be welcomed. I have another day to be talked out of it before my credit card is charged....
Finally pulled the trigger on some Alden for BB unlined shell. Socks are Pantherella.
