Italian Red Wine

Introduction

Italian wines are not just famous for their white counterpart, their red wine has made strong marks around the world for quite some time now. However, there are hundreds of wine grape varieties from Italy and very few of these varieties are known outside of Italy. Now let us have a look at the Italian’s red liquid of pleasure.

Common reds

Sangiovese

A grape with many names planted throughout Italy. Sangiovese is the main grape of Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino in Toscana.

Nebbiolo

A grape that is known for the age-worthy high tannin wines of Barolo and Barbaresco in Piemonte.

Barbera

A dark-skinned grape producing wines with lower tannin & high acidity grown mostly in Piemonte, Italy.

Montepulciano

A grape grown commonly in Central and Southern Italy. Easily confused with vino Nobile de Montepulciano which is actually Sangiovese from the city of Montepulciano in Toscana. Montepuliciano d’Abruzzo is a dark rustic wine with full body, black pepper spice and high tannin.

    When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary.
