Hello Italian Board folks...I am greatly saddened to say that I have recently learned that our friend and barolo-lover extraordinaire, Dave Cuneo, aka Vino Lover from days gone by on the old wine boards, passed away on Tuesday.

A man of kindness, generosity, and many stories, and an abiding love of all things Italian-wine. A gentleman and wine geek of the finest cloth.

A toast to you tonight, VL. You will be missed.
