The Rich Tapestry of Italian Red Wines

Italy's winemaking heritage is as diverse as its landscape, with each region offering something uniquely its own. At A Di Maria & Son, we pride ourselves on sourcing a variety of Italian red wines that capture the essence of Italy's rich viticultural tapestry. 

Here's a glimpse into the variety and character that Italian red wines bring to the table:

1. Barolo

Often referred to as the "King of Wines," Barolo hails from the Piedmont region. Made from Nebbiolo grapes, it's known for its deep flavours, complexity, and ageing potential. A Barolo is a must-try for those who appreciate wines with depth and a robust structure.

2. Chianti

Synonymous with the Tuscan hills, Chianti is primarily made from Sangiovese grapes. It offers a versatile range of flavours from rustic and earthy to rich and fruity. Chianti pairs wonderfully with food, making it a favourite for dinner parties and gatherings.

3. Amarone della Valpolicella

This powerful wine from the Veneto region is produced using a unique process where grapes are partially dried before fermentation, resulting in a rich, full-bodied wine with raisin-like sweetness and a high alcohol content. Amarone is perfect as an accompaniment to many types of food. 

4. Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Hailing from the Abruzzo region, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is known for its approachable character, offering a palate of ripe red fruits, soft tannins, and a hint of spice. It's an excellent introduction to Italian reds for those exploring beyond the more familiar names.

5. Brunello di Montalcino

Another gem from Tuscany, Brunello is made from a specific type of Sangiovese grape. It's celebrated for its boldness, rich flavours of dark cherry and chocolate, and its ability to age gracefully. Brunello di Montalcino is a wine that truly showcases the high quality of Italian winemaking.
