I have a question about the recipe "Short Rib Ragu" from Minimally Invasive. The recipe calls for a big bottle of red wine - what size are we talking about?

A standard sized bottle. "Big" was in reference to body. You want a full-bodied wine here, like a Barolo or Syrah.

MI: Curious. Do you really cook with wine as expensive as Barolo? I generally try to keep some Nebbiolo from outside the region on hand to use instead... and drink that Barolo!

Hi ChefJune - I did recently, but can't say I do often. (And I found a good deal on the bottle.)
