A rosso by any other name

Italian winemaker Luigi Mancini was having so much trouble selling wine in London that he gave up on his own language, states a recent Reuters news story.

"Faced with sceptical restaurateurs he switched the label on his white wine to the more familiar French name to win them over.

'Pinot Nero is not well known, while Pinot Noir is,' he said." True enough. But then us thickies in the UK always thought it was a red wine.
