I am making labels for bottles of wine and have chosen this:
Casa di Marrone --is this grammatically correct? Villa or palazzo or castello are way too presumptuous for my modest little hobby Wink

I think that's great..not sure about whether is grammatically correct or not (although I would think it is) but can you save me some wine????

Of course. Chianti is bottled and aging. I cheated and tasted as I was bottling and it is very good young which is a favorable sign; however, the wine should improve with age(around Dec should be an OK time to pop the cork). I also have Viognier bottled--that's already good.
Too bad this site isn't set up for wine tasting Sad

The word 'marrone' has various connotations (beware of No.3!!!) Embarassed

marrone

1. Variety of chestnut, larger and tastier than the normal kind; chestnut cake; Variety of chestnut tree that bears this fruit-


2 cio delle castagne: chiaro, scuro. Di tale colore.
2. of chestnuts: light, dark. Of that colour.

Whoah Shocked
How about just plain old Brown as in the color?

On the other hand I've bottled up some nut brown ale, maybe I should settle on a generic for both Wink

Well that 'particular word' is usually connected with chestnuts (and those other things....).
Whereas 'brown' uses various words, among which is marrone.

For example:
BROWN
1 bruno; marrone; castano: - bear, orso bruno; - eyes, occhi castani; - shoes, scarpe marroni / Brown Bess, (sl., antiq.) 'Brown Bess' (vecchio tipo di moschetto)


Context counts for everything!

Carole, to think I was sweating articulating double consonants such as anno and penne Shocked Now, I have to worry about snickering and whispering when I open a bottle of my Chianti!

Sounds good to me, Nuccia Very Happy
