Ready for a red wine trip? Italy is a major red wine country and Italian red wine is a must-taste whatever the season (yes indeed, the country’s many reds are fit for warm-weather drinking).
A true treasure hunt could be carried out from the north to the south of the peninsula, in search of elegance and balance between personality and refinement. Anyone craving for variety should actually go for Italian red wine!
With this sharp sommelier’s selection, you’ll go beyond what you’ve ever felt. You will travel to Italian Piedmont through its longest-lived and greatest reds; that is to say dry, full-bodied, complex, and vibrant Barolo and Barbaresco.
Then make a stop in Tuscany for Brunello di Montalcino, a rare wine of limited production praised by critics and celebrated worldwide for its explosiveness and aromatic richness.
Dare to taste the Amarone from Veneto, a very special creamy like-a-syrup Italian red wine made with dried grapes.
Finally head south to Puglia’s Primitivo - a dry, intense and fruity red wine valued by oenologists - or Nero d'Avola, considered as the best Sicilian grape variety.
Italian red wines perfectly match with gravy dishes, grilled meats, and cheese.
