Welcome

Italy

The Romans made Italian wine famous, but by local standards they were late-comers to the game. Strangely, while the Empire exported its techniques across Europe the grapes themselves weren't inclined to travel: Italian varieties like Sangiovese and Nebbiolo are just as ‘noble’ as French counterparts, but to this day they are far less planted internationally. But that’s OK, because Italy produces a staggering quantity and variety of its own charming, eminently food-friendly wines at prices that range from the wildly accessible to the deservedly astronomical.

    2015 Di Majo Norante Sangiovese

    91 Points John Caro
    A superb, richer Sangiovese from Italy's warm Adriatic coast. The relative heat in the small Molise region creates darker fruit character and almost brooding depth on the palate. But the ...

    2015 Felici Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi

    John’s Picks
    91 Points Antonio Galloni's Vinous
    Perhaps the best Verdicchio of its class and pure aperitif pleasure. Like many great styles it balances opposites - weighty and nuanced with (gently) opulent tree fruit and florals, seen ...
