Here's a simple, delicious country wine from the Nebbiolo grape (which, in its most noble form, makes Barolo and Barbaresco). Ruby in color, it jumps with bright, lively fruit. Perfect for spring and summer's lighter menus, and always a great match with a platter of salumeria: Think prosciutto, coppa, salami. * Quick swirl Region: Piedmont. Price: About $12. Style: Bright and lively. Food it goes with: Salami and prosciutto, rustic soups and pastas, grilled and roasted meats.

Beautifully balanced, it's warm, earthy, very Piedmontese. And an attractive buy. It's great with salami and prosciutto, pasta dishes and a classic braised stinco di vitello (veal shank). -- S.

A tall, bulky figure stands on the frozen riverbank of his native town, Sterlitamak, staring toward the dense gray smog gushing down from the sprawling industrial complex on the north side of town. The snow around his feet has turned gray under the mantle of noxious gases; the air is so strafed with chlorine and amorphous petrochemicals that it stings the nostrils.

Chocolate, caviar, Genoa salami, lots of fancy cheese, pate, peanut butter . . . and on everyone's wish list, gourmet coffee.
