"In April 1950, I was not yet ten years old. We were six brothers, my mother was gone and our family was very modest. Then, I realized that it was time to help out, so one morning I got up early, tapped some flasks of Nebbiolo, I took the bike, cycling towards Turin... a man suggested me to go to Superga hill, where I would find people who could appreciate the valuable thing I was carrying with me... I still remember the expression of awe, as generous and elegant could be a wine.
