Italian wine can be confusing but this is what happens when wine has been made in a place for hundreds and hundreds of years! Just don't let the confusion stop you from exploring the many fascinating regions and wines of Italy, it is one of our very favorite spots for great value wines.
Sangiovese is one of the major grapes in Italy, being the backbone of such renowned Italian wines as Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino as well as many Super Tuscans. A few of the often overlooked areas in Italy; however, may give the best value.
Alto Adige in the northern part of the country offers fascinating and affordable red and white wines. Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea likewise offers tremendous value in varieties like Nero d'Avola that you generally don’t find anywhere else. Of course we'll also offer some tried and true favorites from places like Tuscany and beyond and even the occasional Amarone and Barolo that falls into our price range.
