About red Italian wine

Published in: News 09/04/2008

Verona, Romeo and Juliet town, just hosted Vinitaly (April 3-7), the largest wine show in the world.

Thousands of exhibitors came from more than 30 countries and about 150,000 visitors appreciated the guided wine-tastings, the presentations and the conferences about the best wines in the planet.

Here, few clues about Italian red wines: Sangiovese is one of the most common wine-grapes cultivated in Italy. You can see this kind of vineyard, vigneto, in all the area that goes from Romagna to Campania. Sangiovese is the pride of Toscana.

From this variety derive such wines as Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti, Nobile di Montepulciano. In the North, in Piemonte, we find Nebbiolo vineyards from which they produce also the great Barolo. In the same area, most of the hillsides are covered of Barbera vines, considered one of the classic red Italian wines.
