Italian Wines

Fact: Italy produces a larger array of different wines than any other country in the world. There are around six hundred unique grape varieties growing in Italy, most of them indiginous, making such famous wines as Gavi, Barolo, Chianti, and Prosecco, to name just a few. Categorising Italian wines is notoriously difficult due to this vast spectrum, but knowing a little bit about each region and the climates they provide, sets you up with a very useful frame of reference when it comes to what flavours you can expect the wines of each region to deliver.

In the south, the scorching sun makes jammy, deeply fruity wines – like the Legato Nero d’Avola – while northern regions like Piemonte produce more delicate, subtle flavours that often benefit from ageing. In general, Italian wine is often an integral part of a meal, so if you’re cooking an Italian meal, chances are you’ll find the perfect match just a click away. For pasta, the best options are a Cabernet Sauvignon or Sangiovese, and Barbera does incredibly well alongside a pizza.
