Italian Wines

Rolling vineyards, fields of fresh produce and the sun-soaked coast – it's easy to see why our team of beer, wine and spirit developers were inspired by the flavours and colours of the Med. Let us take you on a taste trip, winding around the shore and showcasing the best of each region as we go. Corkscrews and glasses at the ready as we arrive at our final port: Italy

Top picks from Italy

Soft, sun-ripened juicy reds and Britain's favourite fizz – there's a lot to love about Italian wine. Get your own taste of la dolce vita with our wine expert Elizabeth Kelly's picks

A fresh red:
For a ripe red with intense red-fruit flavour that was made to be enjoyed with food, try our Teroldego Vignetti delle Dolomiti. Produced on the secluded Campo Rotaliano plateau in the Adige valley using Teroldego, one of Italy’s ancient grape varieties, this wine has a delicious complexity as it's been aged oak barrels. Enjoy it with charcuterie and a plate of mature cheese with bread.

A premium dry white:
Piedmont is renowned for its whites for good reason, and this Quandro Sei Single Estate Gavi is a great example of the region's distinctly dry, fruity wine. A highly modern wine made with Cortese grapes, producer Claudio Manera chose not to age it in oak, so its lime, pear and apricot characters shine through.

An aromatic white:
Fresh with the spicy aromas of lychee, peach and rose, our golden Alta Luna white comes from the pristine Alpine hills of Trentino in Italy's far north. With its zingy flavours, it pairs perfectly with spiced dishes like a Thai curry or smoked duck.

Expert tips

Our very own Master of Wine, Emma Dawson, gives us her top tips for enjoying Italian varieties:

Italy is a treasure trove of grape varieties with more than 600 to uncover. Start with this gorgeously smooth perricone red from Sicily or a fragrant white fiano with flavours of pear.

Certain Italian reds like valpolicella, bardolino or a fruity Sicilian red are perfect for a light chill. It brings out more of the vibrant fruitiness and makes them feel so much more refreshing. I recommend 20 minutes in the fridge.

If you're uncertain of how to match food and wine, it's often best to choose wines from the same region as the food. Reds like chianti have a nice freshness and bite that make them go really well with rich meaty dishes.

If you're a fan of pinot grigio and not sure what to try next, other northern Italian whites can offer you the perfect diversion. My favourites are soave, gavi or arneis.

Love a robust red? Try a heavier ripe rosso from the Italian south. Some of my favourites are nero d’avola from Sicily or negroamaro and Primitivo from the mainland.

Are you a lover of amarone but not sure why? This intense and fruity red is made in a very special way. Grapes are taken from the vine and dried to an almost raisin level then put back into the juice of a normal wine to create the final, flavour-packed style.

Are you a prosecco fan but want to try something new? Asti is a beautiful Italian sparkling wine. Mild, fragrant, frothy, slightly sweet and, like prosecco, it's great with spicy food.
