It’s always hard to talk about my father.
Seven years have passed but it’s as if it happened yesterday.
Sometimes it feels like it never happened.
He’s a constant presence, every day of my life.
Every time that I walk through one of “his” vineyards.
Every time that we pick the first bunches of Chardonnay.
For thirty-four years, he was my guide, my conscience, and my best friend.
He was never a fan of posthumous awards but I’m sure that the “Negroamaro Ambassador” prize, given to him last week by the city of Guagnano, would have made him really happy.
The video, produced by Mariella Tamorrino and edited by Stefano De Tommasi for the 2012 Terre del Negroamaro prize, is a wonderful tribute.
