We deal with all fine wines, however, we
Italian. If you love Italian wine, here are a few things which
distinguish its luscious
taste from the other bottles on the shelf.
Italian wines tend to be high in acidity which means they tend to pair well with food. Italy is a food oriented culture and therefore they make wine to compliment their superb cuisine. White wines are generally crisp whilst red wines tend to be firm.
The feel of the land that you can smell and taste in every bottle is what makes Italian wine so sublime. Though there are some excellent full-bodied wines in Italy (eg: Brunello), the every day preference is for a medium weight. This goes much better with the general Italian food style and doesn't overwhelm it.
Whilst many international grape varieties can be found in Italy, the real fascination is in the incredible variety of local and regional grape types, many dating back to antiquity. Nebbiolo , for example, the grape used to make Barolo , can only be found in Piedmont and Lombardy. These grapes have adapted to their regions over hundreds of year giving them unique characteristics reflected in the wines they make. No other country offers such an extraordinary choice of wines.
