High ceilings, soft-spoken staff, and generous space between displays encourage browsers to quietly wander among the bottles at this atmospheric shop. A few massive Italian antiques, tapestries, and a worn terracotta-colored carpet give the room a lived-in, slightly baronial style. Owners Claudio Coronas and Diego Faccioli are Italian and, accordingly, Italian wines fill the front of the store. Their selections run to small-production wines from lesser-known parts of the boot—rather than load up on Tuscans, they seek out choices from Southern regions like Calabria, Molise, and Sardinia. Credenzas in back hold wines from the rest of the world, weighted to Spain and France, plus a small selection of liquors like swan-necked vessels of Poli grappa. Every nook reveals rare or unusual bottles, like Justin Orphan, Piedmont’s La Spinetta Barbaresco, and Chassagne-Montrachet Les Champ Gains from Burgundy. Eager customers have been known to test the corkage policy at neighboring restaurant Dressler.Sales
