Hi,

I am travelling to Rome in two weeks. I have lived in Campania a few years ago, and will not have the time to go south this time. Hence, my question is simple:

Where do I go in Rome to drink a good bottle of Taurasi with suitable food?

I will be staying in southern Testaccio, but is quite flexible...

  1. I'm pretty sure Checchino dal 1887 in Testaccio has good bottles of Taurasi. They have one of the best wine cellars in Rome, including, I believe, some Romanee-Conti. They are quite specialized in Roman cooking and evidently consider it suitable..

          Roscioli also has some Taurasi wines on its online cellar list - I am sure there are others offering too.
