You are probably conversant with your Sangioveses and your Nebbiolos. Maybe you even feel at home with Barbera, Dolcetto, and Pinot Grigio. But who is this austere yet worldly northerner named Kerner? And, from the opposite end of Italy, the intriguingly fragrant Frappato? Wonder no more, as we widen your social circle to include some more obscure, but no less delicious, varietals and styles from the farthest regions of Italy.
