Rihanna Knows Her Wine

Nov. 1 — We love it when the gossip is about important things like wine.  According to celeb watchers who never miss a thing, Rihanna was spotted leaving classy Italian restaurant Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, California recently, a half-drunk bottle of Sassicaia in hand.  A popular Super Tuscan, the 2010 vintage of Sassicaia retails for just under $200 a bottle.  Add the three-time mark up usual in the restaurant business and you have quite an investment in what was left in the bottle.

We like to see the singer being frugal, even if she did earn $48 million last year according to Forbes.
