Italy

Spread over such a large area, it is unsurprising that Italy has a huge amount to offer in terms of diversity of style, quality and grape varieties. Italy is home to a vast array of indigenous grape varieties that are rarely seen elsewhere and which makes this country so special.

The Italian fine wine market is dominated by the wines from Piedmont and Tuscany; but there is to be sought outside of these regions. In particular, the wines from Valpolicella located around the foothills near Verona and producing not only lighter, fruitier styles but also richer, fuller-bodied wines most famously made using the passito and ripasso methods. For the best growers, we recommend you look to Romano dal Forno, Quintarelli and Allegrini.
