Re: Italy wine shop recs

In Milan you cannot miss Cantine Isola in Via Sarpi (https://www.cantineisola.com/it/contatti.html). The owners are great people: stop over there for an aperitivo in the evening and grab some wines to take with you. You will have a great time!

Itialian Nebbiolo Producer Organizations???

You should start from the Consorzio di Tutela Barolo e Barbaresco (www.langhevini.it). Despite the name, the organization does not only include Barolo and Barbaresco producers, but also Langhe Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Barbera and so on.

Wine Import Shipping Quotes

I am in the process of setting up a small import operation and I found JF Hillebrand very responsive, as suggested by Marc.
Another good place to look at to have ballpark numbers is iContainers (https://www.icontainers.com/).
