While most of us have red blood cells, it might be said that Riccardo has wine coursing through his veins. Owner and President of Wine Attitude, his innovation involves wine buying, traveling and writing about wine, and marketing his company.

He is also a cancer survivor.

“My father has prostate cancer as does my brother in law. They were fortunate to catch it early. I was not. I foolishly ignored symptoms. Two years ago, I was diagnosed with malignant melanoma, an incurable form of cancer. I will live every day of my remaining time with cancer. My initial diagnosis was grim, 6 months to a year. But God has blessed me with more time.”

Riccardo wears his Blue Tie as a message, especially to young men, to be vigilant about their health.

“I never imagined I would be diagnosed with cancer, much less terminal. It can happen to anyone,” he says.
