taly is home of a huge array of wines, regions, grape varieties and wine styles. From the misty, lush rolling hills of the north to the sun-drenched hills of Tuscany, Umbria, the Marche and Abruzzo, to the southern lands of Puglia, Calabria and Basilicata, while not forgetting the islands of Sicily and Sardinia.
Each region has its flagship wine styles. Some are famous because they are produced in large volumes and can be found all over the world, others because of their consistently high quality.
Veneto's vast output (the region made over one billion liters of wine in 2021) of Prosecco, Soave, Valpolicella and varietal Pinot Grigio does little to boost its reputation as a fine wine region, and yet it produces one of the world's richest, finest wines: Amarone della Valpolicella.
Light citrus spritz.
Encompassing everything from sweet Moscato to approachably crisp Prosecco, these wines are light and lemony with green apple and floral characters.
