|Thursday| Sarcophagus of Junius Bassus

Posted in Art, Wine by Vinum Vine on September 8, 2016

 

Sarcophagus of Junius Bassus butti harvesting grapes.JPGThe Sarcophagus of Junius Bassus is a marble Early Christian sarcophagus used for the burial of Junius Bassus, who died in 359. It has been described as “probably the single most famous piece of early Christian relief sculpture.”   The sarcophagus was originally placed in or under Old St. Peter’s Basilica, was rediscovered in 1597, and is now below the modern basilica in the Museo Storico del Tesoro della Basilica di San Pietro (Museum of Saint Peter’s Basilica) in the Vatican. The base is approximately 4 x 8 x 4 feet.

Together with the Dogmatic sarcophagus in the same museum, this sarcophagus is one of the oldest surviving high-status sarcophagi with elaborate carvings of Christian themes, and a complicated iconographic programme embracing the Old and New Testaments.

|Saturday| Pinot Gris versus Pinot Grigio

Posted in Vinum Vine, Wine by Vinum Vine on September 3, 2016

They’re the same grape, but one is French, and the other is Italian.

Pinot Gris  is from the Alsace region of France; it’s rich, sweet, spicy, and has tropical fruit aroma. Pinot Grigio is from northeastern Italy; it’s lighter, crisp, clean, citrus, and vibrant.
