I checked thoroughly the text, the quotes and references with respect to copypaste issue and everything seems fine to me. The only thing I added was the acknoledgement of (content on O'Keefe/Brunellopoli copied from I kept those 3 quotes as so-called Brunellopoli was a big deal in the Italian wine world, with hundred of thousands of bottles sequestered for illicit blending. O'Keefe is the only writer I know of, in addition to NYT Eric Asimov (mentioned in the Brunellopoli article), to go on record years before the scandal broke to imply that something was wrong. Given the delicate nature of the matter, with several trials involved, I thought it was relevant and interesting for a wine lover to read directly what she said, instead of paraphrasing it. I eliminated all quotes about the Brunello (2012) book. In the Contentions section Tim Crane, professor of philosophy at the University of Cambridge and keen wine expert, put O'Keefe in the camp of 2 British wine critics, all with their own Wikipedia page, rather than the US critic mentioned before. I added the fact that he wrote about this in The Times Literary Supplement, as I find it significant as it rarely deals with wine books. I also let the second sentence which refers to the NYT wine critic commenting on an O'Keefe article, but I eliminated the quote "fascinating" from the article. What I found interesting is that it is not a passing mention as this is his introductory sentence: "Fascinating article in the current issue of “The World of Fine Wine,’’ a glossy, erudite and, alas, very expensive British wine quarterly that always has many things worth reading. This article, by Kerin O’Keefe, a wine writer based in Italy, suggests that the Super-Tuscan category, which has attracted so much attention in the last 35 years, may have run its course." Other changes I made are documented. WG Wine (talk) 11:14, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

I copied this to the article talk p., where those working on the article whoever they may be will see it. I think I've done & said enough. In many subjects, there tends to be a certain style in in writing, which tends to be reflected in our articles. DGG ( talk ) 01:57, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
