Need good examples of the "full bodied red wine" this recipe calls for! I'm not a big drinker, so I don't know which red wine to choose.
Please suggest brands/types of red wine for my dinner party guests. I assume "full bodied" means a Nebbiolo/Cabernet type wine, but I don't know one Nebbiolo from another, so if you can provide some brands and years, etc., that would be super helpful.
Recipe question for: Brasato al Barolo (Piedmont-Style Pot Roast)

Also possible, depending on availability near you, your taste and budget for the dish:
Barolo itself, as in the name of the dish. Made in Piedmont region from nebbiolo grape. Delicious, expensive.
Other wines whose labels report being made in that region or with that grape, like Barbaresco (also delicious, usually less expensive than Barolo).
Wines from Neive, near Barbaresco region.
Gattinara, another nearby wine, with at least 90% of Spanna grape (local name for nebbiolo). Good and usually moderately priced.
