Giulio Gambelli dies (Italy)

Giulio Gambelli, one of the giants of Tuscan wine, has died at the age of 86. Gambelli – who was known as Bicchierino (or ‘Little Glass’) – was celebrated as one of Italy’s greatest connoisseurs of Sangiovese, and recognised as a superb taster. He was born in 1925 in Poggibonsi in Siena, and joined Enopolio de Poggibonsi, which was then one of the largest wineries in the region, at the age of 14 as a cellar hand, reports Decanter.
