Vin de Napkin - Hot in the Shade Edition

More social commentary on the back of a napkin ...

I love to look at similar things for the irony in their juxtaposition ...  in the 70’s Italian-car maker Fiat entered the U.S. market and withered with poor quality.  In the ‘00’s Chrysler withered with notorious and exceptionally poor quality (amongst other things).  So what does Fiat do?  They buy Chrysler assets of course ...

Might be a match made in heaven ...

Yet, at the same time, we get news reports that Italians aren’t trading down the quality in their wine ...

Funny people those Italians ...

Elsewhere, even though its perilous times for wine writers, it can’t be that hard ... I can’t count the number of mentally mailed in columns I’ve seen recently with the same topic—value wines. At the least, nobody seems to be working too hard at writing compelling stuff for clips for their portfolio ...
