Hi Echi, I talked to Andrea some days ago and he confirmed that he tries to avoid Val di Fiemme. He was recently there for the first time in 20 years and bought some spruce, but not very much. Andrea said he was a close friend of Paolo Coriani and highly praised his craftsmanship. He recently saw and played a cypress Torres built by Coriani and recalls that the tone was "to die for". Tacchi also said that Paolo had the best and most impressive timber in his stock he had ever seen in his life. He will know what he's talking about.
