Price: $25.49. Goes with: Make that sausage pizza something special with the pull of a cork. Why I chose it: So much of what we drink is young, so this 2007 Aglianico blew me away.

For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case chosen by John Sarofeen of Grape Expectations in Tarrytown.
