WINE AND ME
WINE AND ME
Wine is passion, sharing and culture. Wine is like people: you meet it, then it develops, moving you to curiosity, disappointment or enthusiasm. I discovered Wine while growing up and it made me understand things about me and life.
I learned about Wine from many people and am still learning day by day: my deepest gratitude goes to Sandro Sangiorgi who opened my soul to Wine. In 2006 I made up my mind to leave Milan (the city of my youth) to go back to Tuscany (mynative Region) and start a truly new job experience.
I worked as Sales and Export Manager for some Tuscan producers till 2016.
Now, The Crystal Sip is my endless project to let people discover hidden lands, producers and wines, new gems ready to blossom. I wish to share my Wine Vision with Demanding Customers and Passionate Wine Lovers.
Around the World discovering Italian wines
In the present Wine Market we have several choices, but only sometimes they are real opportunities. The Clients requests are so many and constantly changing, that it is not easy to find a fit wine for them. Behind any bottle we have a person and a story. So, to choose an interesting wine, we need to get in touch with the producer and we must listen to a story. From his/her side, the producer should have a consistent wine philosophy, keep a constant quality standard, show a humble approach and a market attitude.
Last but not least, not only he/she produces excellent wines, but is also able to offer service and support: actually, to introduce and sell a wine in a new market is just one of the steps of a long term development, because we also need to support Sales Force, Logistic and Distribution, Branding and Customers Loyalty.
That's why I don't like to talk just of a “Customer & Supplier Relationship”, but rather of “a Partnership for a Market”.
WINES AND FRIENDS ALL AROUND THE WORLD

MY WINES SELECTION
You can easily find good wines, but it is not enough.
Personally, I am not in search for The (unreal) Perfect Wine, but I am looking for interestingwines, showing their specific personality.
You can easily tell them during a blind tasting, due to their uniqueness and you can even keep in your memory their sounds of fragrance.
Usually, such wines are originated from a Terroir and a producer vision; possibly, they are pure, genuine, authentic, without manipulations and mainly they are output of Nature and Human Skill, not of modern Technology.
When we taste wines like these, their bottles run out quickly.
I am cooperating with producers from many Italian Regions and my aim is to introduce them to the Wine Markets worldwide, offering their wines to Fine Wine Buyers. I met all of them personally and walked with them through their vines.
I like Vignerons, waking up every day looking at the vineyards and going to bed at night thinking about tomorrow's weather or about the next tasting from the vats.
I like working with producers who make the wines they love, not for fashion or greed of success, but just for a Wine Idea. So my ideal producer sometimes makes challenging choices, maybe upstream or foolish, but
