Hey, maybe you know, maybe you dont: Lacrima di morro d’alba
from Le Marche region of Italy. Morro d’Alba is a town, and lacrima (tear) is a locally grown grape/wine. I can’t get enough of it. Enjoy.

    I’m going through the back episodes. It’s pretty interesting to see how this GREAT show evolved. I really think this vid-blog going to become a very important…thing.

    Gary got “silly” for the first time. I did start hearing the camera mans breathing but wouldn’t have said anything until reading all of the other comments. The WLTV has improved in quality video tremendously!

    Aww, I like the spit bucket! Why would people want this left out? (then again, I am coming from watching some of the newer episodes) Good fake on the spitting, Gary, but why is it easier to taste when you spit as opposed to swallowing? I can subjectively taste better when swallowing because that really allows you to see the finish.

    This will forever be dubbed as the breathing episode!

    Did your prediction come true from then to now (2/24/08)?

    Gary getting “silly.” Do it more often.

    Love the show! Keep it up, Gary, and get fa’shnikin!

    OK, I learned something today! I’m going to seek out this wine. But what I think would be REAL COOL, is for the show to go back and review wine, that you though would get better and some wines, you thought were not quite ready to drink when you tasted. Those would be a couple cool shows, you could link up the old show or shows, then we could watch the wines tasted after a year or two. No charge for that idea!! JUST DO IT!! Remember those old Nike ads?

    Excellent show. Here are some suggestions:

    1) purchase a remote microphone and turn down the volume on the camera. With a remote microphone, you can focus on what Gary is saying and not on the breathing.

    2) it would be great to talk about some of the history of the wines and the nutrients in the soil and how that influences the bouquet.

    Wow. That wine is crazy dark.

    Ha. The whole episode I was thinking, “Is that Eric breathing in the background?” I was not alone :).

    Now I know what my wife experiences while I watch WLTV and she’s reading a book. With my headphones on, I apparently go into a deep trance and breathe really heavily. If he would’ve been laughing periodically, it would have been spot on.

    Gary,
    Even though the wine is sold out, it appears that it retails for $19.98 in your store when you were carrying it. Wonder if that is the current price or if when it sold out back in 2006, the website and price were never updated. Keep up the great work.

    Love when you talk about wines or wine areas that are under the radar. Great to hear about something new. Vin jaunes out of Jura would fit in that category, that would be great to see you do.

    Love when you call out the “next big things.”

    Also love this first appearance of “silliness” holding the glass up to the camera. THAT shows the color to me better than just holding it up in front of a piece of white paper.

    Gary is about to hit his stride. Who's the breathing monster…? ? ? Spooky episode man!

  • corkscrew

    reviewing oldies continues..better table and the 1st sign of the “Jets” appear! I was waiting for a guy in a tenchcoat to jump out in the middle of the video with all that breathing…never have tried a wine from this region..yet. Noticed that Gary commented that he would give a weeks notice on wines he was goin to review so people could go out and wine along with him..not sure that happened much..and can you imagine people bitching about the spit bucket.. http://www.winelx.com

    I can't hear you, to much scary breathing. Gary, look out, the mummy strikes! Oh God, now he has a whistler. I have A D D I can't help it. BLOW YOUR NOSE MAN! Wine what wine?

    I remember that scary “near death” breathing! Part of history now! I have founded http://www.roadshows.tv in 2004 (one of the first if not the first CEO roadshow plateform for publicly traded companies) and we had our “scary moments” too! About the wine you were right that in Italy there are a lot of small areas to discover or re-discover

    Get that man a doctor!!! AHHHHHHHHH!

    Great episode, The Jets makes an apperance for the first time. Gary steps it up a notch!

    Gary’s comment about wine marketing is so true. Lot’s of wine lovers “drinking down” these days, and finding great wines!

    I don’t remember how the market for maremma was 5 yrs ago but its moving right now in Qc, great buys for 20-25$ for wines from Bogheri, really attractive compared to Bordeaux wines that are 3 time the prices for the same quality.

  • Anonymous

    Man that is some HEAVY BREATHING! hahaha. It still is around $15 dollars but you are right that this area has some of the best qpr wines of italy

    PS. You Suck….jp

    line of the day – ‘we’ve already had a great controversy with the spit bucket’

    Early days, very short episode

    I’d say your buying advice was right on the money! The price went up and up and up in the years following this episode.
