After the hardwork you put into making the sauce, you can’t store it anywhere else but the cantina, right?

 

2. Bottles or barrels of wine

Whether homemade or storebought, the cantina is usually the perfect tempurature to store wine.

These are usually only pulled out for company.

Depending on the way you cook, you can go through a bottle of these every 2-3 days.

 

5. Salami, Capicola, Pancetta or Soppressata hanging from the ceiling

An Italian cantina is never complete without these.

 

6. Newspaper spread across the floor

These are placed down after hanging the cured meats to protect the floor maybe?

 

7. Either oregano or peppers hanging to dry

The taste after these are dried is even better!

 

8. Packs of paper towel

Or even cases of coke when there is a sale and you buy in bulk. Where else would you store them other than the cantina?
