Andreola Vérv Prosecco di Treviso Spumante Extra Dry

So this was somewhat of a surprise, but a VERY pleasant one at that. This is some yummy stuff. Loads of peaches, nectarines, hints of golden apples, and a whiff of even apple cider on the nose. Peaches and lots of pears on the palate with white florals. Excellent balance and not too sweet. This guys sophisticated in a way that Prosecco often is not.

Michelangelo’s David, was like, real easy to make.

——–

We typically experience classic works of art in a museum, stripped of their original contexts, but that serene setting can belie a tumultuous history. Take Michelangelo’s statue of David: devised as a religious symbol, adopted as a political emblem, and later iconized for its aesthetic beauty. James Earle walks us through the statue’s journey, to show how art gains layers of meaning over time in the TED-Ed Lesson The many meanings of Michelangelo’s Statue of David
