Ah, I have heard of it (my Italian knowledge is very limited), so I guess it
wouldn't be too hard to come by. Of course, the Internet is crap for this
sort of thing.

I haven't seen it mentioned, but a few weeks ago Tokai was in danger because
of flooding - it was only an inch or two away from flooding the entire
cellars :(

There's one that advertises in Wine magazine as a German specialist. I

Wine magazine is probably a good place to find Italian specialists as well.
