Barolo, I’m still in love with you on this harvest moon

The world is such a grand, beautiful place, isn’t it? But it’s a small world after all…

Yesterday, trading emails about this and that, my friend Giuseppe Vaira of G.D. Vajra in Barolo sent me and McDuff this amazing photo of sunrise in Barolo (click image for full effect).

“Moon Nebbia Dawn on Bricco delle Viole. View of the western slope. October 5, 2010, 6:35 a.m., two days to the new moon.”

Barolo, I’m still in love with you… On this harvest moon…

Come a little bit closer
Hear what I have to say
Just like children sleepin’
We could dream this night away.

But there’s a full moon risin’
Let’s go dancin’ in the light
We know where the music’s playin’
Let’s go out and feel the night.

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

When we were strangers
I watched you from afar
When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart.

But now it’s gettin’ late
And the moon is climbin’ high
I want to celebrate
See it shinin’ in your eye.

—”Harvest Moon,” Neil Young

Did I mention that Giuseppe’s Dolcetto d’Alba is mama Judy’s favorite wine?

  1. what about Bricco delle Viole 1996? I guess that would be pushing it, wouldn’t it? ;-)

    Aaaaahh, Tracie P, how I wish I could be that sweet Nebbiolo as it passes over your divine lips!!!

    I love you, too, Piccina. Is it weird that I don’t think it’s weird that you’re sitting in the next room and we’re commenting back and forth pretending to be working?

    Love you… :-) So glad the weekend is here!

  2. O man, I so wanted to get up to the east coast that last week of Oct. but it’s not going to happen. NYC might happen in November and if it does, I’ll come down to Philadelphia and we’ll hang with Wildy too! I know that 96 is only gonna get better…

    and yeah, when I saw that photo, I could just HEAR the Neil Young track. Such a great song… thanks for the kind words, man…
