TIPS FOR DRINKING WELL IN ITALY

Italian wine is a daunting subject fraught with unfamiliar grape varieties from regions you’ve never heard of and would struggle to get close to pinpointing on a map. Although the total changes slightly year-to-year, dependent on vintage size, Italy is frequently the world’s number one producer of wine by volume and it is home to a dizzying number of indigenous grape varieties – estimates vary but the total is generally agreed to be around one thousand different varieties.
