Italy offers incredible diversity when it comes to wine. Each region has its own renowned varietals and winemaking styles. Take your palate on a tour with these favorites:
Piedmont – Barolo
Made from the Nebbiolo grape, Barolo is the “King of Wines.” It’s intense and complex with notes of cherry and spices. Pair it with truffles and hearty meat dishes.
Tuscany – Chianti Classico
This iconic Sangiovese-based wine comes from the heart of Tuscany. Expect flavors of cherry, leather and herbs. Enjoy it with pasta, grilled meats and Pecorino cheese.
Veneto – Amarone
Amarone’s ripe, raisined red grapes give it a rich, almost sweet intensity. Notes of dried fruit and chocolate pair perfectly with risotto and game meats.
Trentino-Alto Adige – Pinot Grigio
Northern Italy produces a fuller-bodied style of this popular white. Flavors like citrus, melon and honeysuckle pair well with seafood and lighter pastas.
Sicily – Nero d’Avola
This indigenous Sicilian red grape makes medium-bodied wines with berry, plum and spice notes. It’s delightful with eggplant, sausages and other island flavors.
Umbria – Sagrantino
An intense red that’s high in tannins and acidity. Dark berry, plum and pepper notes shine. Enjoy it with roasted lamb or aged cheeses.
