A Blog by Franco Ziliani
Born in Milan in 1956, Franco Zilliani has worked as a journalist since 1979 and he has been writing about wine since 1984. He publishes the blogs 'Vino al Vino', and 'A Thousand Bubbles', dedicated to the world of sparkling wines. Franco edits a column about rosé wine on the portal 'Il Cucchiaio di Argento' ; he writes and is member of the editorial board of 'The World of Fine Wine' (www.finewinemag.com); he also contributes to internet sites in Poland - 'Winicjatywa' – and Russia - 'Spazio Vino' . A great lover of Barolo and Barbaresco, he has dedicated many articles and activities to these wines, and also created the internet site 'Barolo di Barolo', entirely devoted to the story, the reality and the people behind Barolo at the eponymous village, the capital of wine. As mentioned in Wikipedia, Franco Zilliani was the first Italian journalist to reveal the scandal of Brunello di Montalcino, which has gone down in history under the name 'Brunellopoli'.
