This newly opened wine shop specializes in Italian vino, with more than 400 varietals neatly organized by geographic origin (Central, Northern, Southern) and price (a display features $9, $10 and $11 bottles). But oenophiles will really flip for the store’s boozy paraphernalia, including sculptural silver wine racks ($66–$400), a set of ’60s-style decanters from Italy ($90 each, five for $420), nickel-plated coolers ($200–$400) and eye-catching corkscrews, like ones made of naturally petrified twisted vine ($25). Don’t forget to pop into the backyard sculpture garden, where local blacksmith Anthony Cuonzo displays his metallic works of art (highlights include a ten-foot-tall dinosaur and a circular rendition of our city’s skyline).
