Following on from the highly popular 'Understanding the Wines of France' series of tastings, comes a series of 4 tastings looking to get under the skin of Italy and its wines. It will provide you with a deeper understanding of the landscapes, regions and cultures through this very diverse and regionalised wine country.


In part 1 took a general overview of Italy and its wines.

We looked at the Denominaziones, the DOCG quality system and demystified the often confusing Italian terms you commonly find on a bottle or label (superirore, classico, riserva, appassimento...)


In part 2 we looked at the Wines of Northern Italy - exploring the grapes/regions of Piemonte, Veneto and Friuli.


In part 3 we are continuing our journey South with a look at the Wines of Central Italy - covering the  wines of Tuscany, Abruzzo and Marche with an honourable mention to Umbria!
