N' Ombra de Vin is Brera's best best when it comes to bordeaux and beaujolais but those looking for a fresh take on The Wine bar should head to Bicerin. Enoteca-cum-wine-bar, its a chic space that is as cozy as it is delicious. In cooler months ask for a table by the fireplace which will compliment that bottle of Barolo and cheese spread like a dream.
Casey: I love the juxtaposition of the new furniture with the old setting. That's why I like nature and metal in my condo, and another favorite place of mine is Ta Prohm temple in Cambodia (Trees growing over onto the temples a la Lara Croft Tomb Raider). http://www.carloecamillainsegheria.it/
