TASTING NOTES: It must have been a grand villa. The scattered mosaics depicting gardens blooming with honeysuckle, verbena and kaffir lime trees. How long has it been since this courtyard contained bees or live lemons or the flesh of plumeria? For the next few minutes it is yours then the cocksure trucks will arrive with their salt and cold hammers to begin construction of the road.
