Move over, Barolo. Wines from neighbor Dogliani, Italy were recently granted the superior DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garanita) classification, too. Dogliani wines use only Dolcetto grapes, which have always taken a back seat to Barolo’s Nebbiolo, but produce some juicy, complex dry reds. See what the upgrade is all about with the 2014 Pecchenino San Luigi Dogliani. $15.

Do your patriotic duty this Election Day and drink an Americano – whether to celebrate or drown your sorrows. Invented in Milan by Gaspare Campari in the 1860s, the drink earned its name due to its popularity among American expats. It’s a pleasant balance of bitter, sweet and savory tempered by club soda. Combine 1½ ounces each Campari and sweet vermouth in an ice-filled highball glass. Top with club soda, stir gently and garnish with half an orange wheel. - Ted and Jamie Kilgore, USBG, B.A.R.

Turkey Day is right around the corner, so I’m planning my holiday feast. I pair my kitchen prep (and Thanksgiving meal) with sour and funky Lindemans Gueuze Cuvée René, which is full of bright citrus notes and apple and blue cheese aromas, or Crooked Stave’s effervescent, herbaceous Colorado Wild Sage, an oak-aged farmhouse saison that primes me for the season. $11 and $6.50.
