Once, when he was President, he came to us and asked for a wine from Sardinia «Capichera», and on this day, this wine did not have, and he says,»Tino! You’re from Sardinia, why not you this your fault?» «I don’t know the supplier did not bring!» And Medvedev said:»Tino, in my house there is wine, two boxes, I’ll get you!» This was a joke.
