Rome’s best-stocked bottle shop has long been a champion of natural wines. Tables throughout the wine shop provide a place to sample wines by the glass or bottle paired with a very limited menu of cheeses or cured meats. In addition to their ample stock of the country’s best traditional and natural producers, Bulzoni has a well-curated collection of French and Austrian wines. Though the markup tends to be a bit higher than at other venues in Rome, there are a few steals to be found—enough that it will make the trip to posh Parioli more than worth the effort.
