This is all we need to know for a fast and furious elimination process.
Both (A) and (D) claim that Luchesi is a kind of wine, and we can eliminate them both for doing so.
(C) is totally wrong. There's no evidence

or two about Amontillado, so we know they're rivals.
It's also rumored that Fortunato doesn't like Luchesi because he overuses the word "cahoots"...
