Villa Sola Cabiati at Grand Hotel Tremezzo

On our #RadarList is a summer residence of the royals, the 16th-century Villa Sola Cabiati, still privately owned by the descendants of the Serbelloni family, stands out as one of the grandest mansions in a region full of them at Lake Como.

It was formerly the residence of the Serbelloni family, one of Milan’s noblest. On-site, there is a deconsecrated chapel, and the top-floor museum even features the bed of Napoleon Bonaparte and Josephine, whose entire bedroom was moved from the Serbelloni family’s Milanese residence Palazzo Serbelloni to the villa during World War II.


Review: Dom Perignon Plenitude 2 (P2) 2002

Released in 2017, Dom Perignon’s 2nd expression of the vintage 2002 is today showing very well and is perfect for that special occasion.   Tasted recently on three separate occasions this champagne is at a beautiful window.  Youthful, fresh yet displaying complexity, sophistication and depth, aromas of lemon, hazelnuts, stone fruit and brioche greet you on the nose.  The palate has such lively acidity, great balance and finishes with a rich luxurious mouthfeel.  The P2 2002 can age for many more years but it is also extremely beguiling now.
