I'm more like a barbaresco kind of guy
16 October 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

A middle aged man (Michael Cumpsty) worked as wine dealer. But he didn't trade the common wines you can find at the restaurant, but high quality ones (most came from last centuries) you bought only at auction sale. He set up a taste meeting with few guests in his hometown with his new collection just delivered by armored vans. When all guests left, he lost his senses inside the cellar and he was unable to get out because someone locked him up. What appears to be a heart attack was really a murder, because his wine glass was blended with Viagra. The wealthy man had a lot of enemies in his business and even his business partners had something to hide in relation to a fraud. Suddenly a prenup turned up and detectives have to look even inside the household.

This episode shows us the classic uptown marriage, made up of cheating and blackmailing where only money counts. You can see since the beginning the stone cold way one looked at the other. "Dumbest day of my life" written in a marriage portrait: cool!
