Photo detail

In this photo taken on Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2013, wine expert Daniele Cernilli is interviewed by the Associated Press in Rome. Domestic wine consumption is currently at its lowest levels since Italy was unified as a nation in 1861, according to Coldiretti, Italy's main farmers' association. " The wines which do best during an economic crisis are the most expensive ones, because those who buy top-end wines are those with economic means, and therefore those who suffer the crisis the least," said food and wine expert Daniele Cernilli, and the expensive wines are more likely to be enjoyed in New York or Beijing than in the local village.
