Barolo by the glass in Rome?

I've never had a real bottle of Barolo in my life. I'm very curious about it and would love to try some high end wines by the glass in order to test the waters, maybe try a few. Are there any wine bars in Rome that have really high end stuff by the glass?
Hope that's not a tacky question!! :)
Not at all a tacky question. Trimani is a good bet. Also the last time I had lunch at Casa Bleve (not lately) the back page of the wine list was important reds by the glass, not, of course, always the same ones. I'm not sure whether Achillii al Parlamento has big reds, but there's always a rotating selection of wines by the glass and there may well be, and anyway it's a lot of fun to have a glass of wine and a tartine there.
Roscioli almost always has at least one barolo by the glass. There about 15 wines by the glass on offer there at any time. Il goccetto has a good by the glass selection as well, sometimes a barolo.
