proven selection:Great Italian Wine Doesn’t Need to be Expensive
When someone utters the word Italy, it most likely doesn't take too long for wine to come to your mind. Italy exports more wine than any country on earth. It boasts over 350 grape varieties and fifteen recognized wine regions.
Not surprisingly, Italian food goes perfectly with wine; pasta dishes, wood-fired pizzas, aged cheeses, and succulent meats all beg for a delicious glass of Italian wine.
You may think you need to spend a small fortune for that perfect bottle of vino, but some of our best-selling Italian wines come with very affordable price tags. And, it's not just the price which drives the sales, but also the great quality.
When you see the reasonable price of Ronco Delle Betulle Refosco, you might be surprised at its complexity. Made from intensely red grapes its subtle herbal notes and relatively high acidity it pairs well with fatty meats, wild game such as rabbit and aged cheeses.
If your menu includes wood-fired pizza, you can't go wrong with Florentia Chianti Classico Reserva DOCG.
This Chianti bursts with cherry and berry notes and with the perfect tannic and dryness balance, it brings out the best in your Italian pie. Of course, Chianti pairs perfectly with traditional Italian pasta dishes such as spaghetti and meatballs and lasagna. And, at $24 a bottle, why not buy a case!?
You may mostly think of red wine when choosing Italian selections, but don't forget about the excellent whites the regions offer as well. Tenuta San Pietro Gavi Mandorlo hails from the Mandorlo vineyards. The beautiful straw-like yellow color and floral and almond flavors make it an excellent accompaniment for seafood, chicken and other white meat, and young or soft cheeses. The relatively moderate alcohol content also makes it a drinkable wine all by itself.
These examples represent just some of the best selling Italian wines. For more information and help in selecting the perfect Italian wine contact us.
