What would «Belpaese» be without its wine? Even the Roman emperors appreciated the worry breaker and 2,500 years later we are still grateful for the supply of liquid from the south. Vineyards are cultivated in each of the 20 regions on the Italian boot. It is therefore hardly surprising that Italy is the world leader in terms of production volume. Chianti, Montepulciano or Barolo; Asti, Roero Arneis or Moscato – these names make the heart of every wine enthusiast beat faster. The variety of wines that reach us from the Apennine Peninsula is almost infinite so for every meal and every budget, it is always possible to find the right wine from Italy.
The best Italian wines are marked with two quality labels: DOC (Protected Designation of Origin) and DOCG (Protected and Controlled Denomination of Origin). To help you get an overview of the numerous Italian drops, Flaschenpost has picked out four of the most important wine regions. Click on the region names to learn more about the best wines from Puglia, Veneto, Piedmont and Tuscany. Of course, you can find our collected wine recommendations – also from other regions of Italy – in our store.
