    Hey Vinoinlove–I would answer more, but there is no way to comment as the Drunken Cyclist! I will try again at home, but I can only connect via my Twitter handle!

      Why can’t you comment as The Drunken Cyclist? You can login via wordpress and then your name should display as The Drunken Cyclist. You can also register on my site with your twitter account and then pick as username The Drunken Cyclist 🙂
      Talk-A-Vino for example registered on my site with his wordpress account. That’s the easiest way to make sure your name displays as The Drunken Cyclist 🙂

    Thanks for the quiz once again! 🙂
    1) A
    2) D
    3) One could be Etna DOC but I don’t know a second one named after a different volcano..
    4) B
    5) Vin Santo is a dessert wine from Tuscany and Umbria. Often made from white grapes but can also be produced with red Sangiovese grapes. The grapes often get sun-dried. Vin Santo can be very sweet but also very dry. Sometimes it’s similar to Sherry.

    Q1 – A
    Q2 – looks like this is your famous tricky question – I see that Bibenda and Duemilavini are both related to the Italian Sollemliers organization, so the answer is “none”
    Q3: Etna DOC and Aglianico del Vulture DOC
    Q4: B, Lago di Como
    Q5: Dessert wine out of Tuscany, made from Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes

      Thanks for participating 🙂
      I can tell you that for Question 2 the correct answer is either A, B, C or D. Little hint: Bibenda is a new wine guide that came out this year for the very first time.

          Hmm I don’t know why Amazon lists the book as Duemilavini 2013. I know that the previous version of the Italian sommelier’s wine guide were all called Duemilavini and the cover always said Duemilavini, too.
          I don’t know why all the wine guides here in Italy dedicate their book to the next year. It’s a good question for the wine-quiz (if I find out the answer!)
          But pretty much all guides here in Italy (and Germany, too) are always for the upcoming year – restaurant guides, wine guides, travel guides..
