Overheard from a Goombah deriding Pinot Noir

I am disturbed by the way people have cast aside their strong Roman blood-line for that weak and faggoty French-perfumed grape. One should be proud of their Italian heritage and the manly wines that come from their country of origin. Your grandparents are undoubtedly rolling over in their graves at the way you have dismissed the great wines of Italy. You should never be ashamed to drink Italian. That should be your motto.

You should ask your family, past and present, to forgive your transgression and never grovel to this false God, the Prince of Pinot. Repent now before it is too late or you will be denied permission to ever again enter the country of Italy!
