Since ancient times, Italy has been THE land of wine! The first Italian vineyardswere planted in the south of the country, in Calabria and Sicily, before gradually spreading towards the North, in all regions without exception.

Here are the 20 Italian wine regions: Aosta Valley, Piedmont, Liguria, Lombardy, Trentino-Alto Adige, Friuli, Veneto, Emilia-Romagna, Tuscany, Marche, Umbria, Lazio, Abruzzo, Molise, Apulia, Campania, Basilicata, Calabria, Sicily and Sardinia.

It is the only country where all regions produce wine, which naturally makes itthe 1st Wine Producer in the World! As in France, each region has its own identity, but we can distinguish two main types of terroir: those on the shores of the Mediterranean and those on the mountain range (to the North).

Italian wines are classified into 4 levels of appellations: DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita), DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata), IGT (Indicazione Geografica Tipica), Vino da Tavola (Table Wine). Italy has a total of 300 appellations throughout its territory. The main grape varieties are: Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Merlot, Barbera, Nero d'Avola for red wines; Catarrato Bianco, Trebbiano,Toscano, Chardonnay, Glera for white wines.

Here are 5 Italian appellations that we recommend: Etna, Barolo, Amarone della Valpolicella, Brunello di Montalcino, Taurasi.
