Italy: an ancient wine country with unique lands, grapes, and traditions. There is a huge variety of flavour and discovery beyond the likes of Prosecco, Pinot Grigio, and Chianti; and to such an extent, that these popular names don't really reflect the true size and variety of Italian wine culture. Italians in fact, tend to drink their own unique regional wines, and thus, export these more commercial styles.
If there is one thing which typifies Italian wine, it's the connection to food. Every region has developed wines to match its cuisine. It's what makes Italy one of the most dynamic, varied, and enjoyable of all wine producing countries.
