Serve Renato Ratti Colombè Dolcetto d'Alba ($15) with strawberry bruschetta, a creamy cheese platter, or a hearty minestrone soup. This rich red wine boasts hints of cherry and plum, and has a balanced and "pleasantly bitter" aftertaste. We plan on stopping by our local Whole Foods and picking up a few cheese staples. It looks like we're feasting on cheese, crackers, and wine tonight!
