MOST INTRIGUING WINES BY THE GLASS
Enoteca Sociale

1288 Dundas St. W., 416-534-1200

Enoteca, the Roman restaurant in an only slightly upgraded former Portuguese sports bar, aspires to the comfort of an Italian grandmother’s kitchen—if Nonna was Monica Vitti. That blend of sophistication and hominess extends to a wine list that fuses the familiar and the foreign. An Enomatic system—which prevents oxidization—allows for experimentation with more expensive juice, like the rare 2006 sagrantino di Montefalco from Umbria—a sturdy, chocolate-scented red.
