60% Barbera. 40% BonardaGutturnio DOCPodere CasalePiacenzaEmilia-RomagnaItaly
"I wonder who was the first to realize that sharp, lively Barbera and soft, round Bonarda were electric together. I salute that person and would, if I had one, raise my gutturnium (traditional Roman imbibing cup) and drink a toast to him/her with youthful cherries-and-chocolate Gutturnio, the result of such a blessed marriage." - Maureen Ahley, MW
Pliny, the Roman writer and wine authority, listed this blend s one of Italy's best wines. It was enjoyed at the tables of Popes, noble houses and famous artists (Michelangelo). Traditionally it is decanted and served at 61-64 degrees F in a Burgundy glass. It goes best with savory vegetable stews, pasta with tomato or meat sauces and roasted red or white meats.
Ancient Romans often drank wine at the end of the meal by passing around a “gutturnium” (a 2 liter silver jug). Emilia-Romagna’s Gutturnio DOC takes its name from a jug found along the Po River in 1878.

"Fabulous wines, all curated, all great prices. Enjoyed talking to a Sonoma vintner (Winery 16600) who was pouring his latest wines...Wine Stop is now my must go to place whenever I'm downtown...Go, you will not be disappointed!" Yelp.com
"Owner Alvaro Cardenas is AMAZING. I needed to send a digital gift card to someone in LA and Alvaro was patient + kind enough to work with me to get the e-gift card out. The recipient is thrilled and it wouldn't have happened without the exceptional customer service provided by Mr. Cardenas. Highly recommend Wine Stop DTLA and will be using the shop for all my LA-based wine gifting needs." Google.com
"You know when you got something good, something great, but it's TOO good, TOO great, to the point where you almost don't want everyone to know about it? That's Wine Stop to me. And that's why I struggle over writing this review. I got introduced to Wine Stop almost 2 years ago and what seemed like an eclectic destination for entrepreneurs, artists, smugglers, dancers, models, photographers, recovering pickup artists, fashion designers, filmmakers, general bon vivants, and Taiwanese people has become a 2nd home whenever I'm in LA... which is sometimes every week."
