Don’t miss a chance to taste the world’s only Crovino—other growers uprooted their vines due to the variety’s low yields and tendency to drop its berries upon achieving ripeness. Those drawbacks are not enough to discourage the Ruffinos, who continue to wave the flag for this ultra-local medium-bodied red. With notes of fresh berries, pepper, and a sweet spiciness, it will wonderfully complement homemade pasta dishes or my favorite pairing, roast rabbit smothered with herbs.

For the wines that I buy I insist that the winemaker leave them whole, intact. I go into the cellars now and select specific barrels or cuvées, and I request that they be bottled without stripping them with filters or other devices. This means that many of our wines will arrive with a smudge of sediment and will throw a more important deposit as time goes by, It also means the wine will taste better.
