Aromas of grape must, blue flower and dark-skinned berry follow over the dry, vibrant palate along with savory notes of star anise and bitter almond. A fizzy mouse and crisp acidity make it incredibly drinkable and food friendly. Kerin O’Keefe

What Is Blind Tasting?

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.

Discover New Regions for Italian Red

Situated in Italy’s northeast, the Veneto region spans just over 7,000 square miles and was one of the nation's first areas to produce wine on a large scale. Wines here are made in a variety of styles under both the Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) and the higher quality designation Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG). But it’s the more popular DOC wines that enjoy an international reputation for their excellent quality-to-price ratio. Though many associate the region with Pinot Grigio and Prosecco, the grapes Soave, Valpolicella and its richer cousin, Amarone, also have deep roots in Veneto. History Local peoples—the Raeti from the confederation of Alpine tribes and the Adriatic Veneti— cultivated wine grapes during the Middle Ages. The resulting wine later enjoyed popularity with the noble classes associated with the Venetian Republic. At its height, Venice, a…

The Central Italy Wine Region extends from the western Tyrrhenian Coast to the Adriatic Coast on the east, covering the regions of Abruzzo, Lazio, Marche, Tuscany and Umbria. Tuscany is well-regarded for its Sangiovese wines from the famed DOCGs such as Chianti, Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Along Tuscany’s long coastal stretch, Maremma, international varieties thrive. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah have been utilized in super Tuscan blends, according to our Central Italy Wine Ratings. Italy’s landlocked region, Umbria, produces two DOCG wines: Sagrantino di Montalfaco and Torgiano Rosso Riserva. Sagrantino is a red varietal that’s naturally high in tannin; the finished wines usually require years of cellaring in order to be fully expressive. Torgiano Rosso Riserva is a Sangiovese-dominant red. White wines thrive in coastal Lazio, with much of the production based on the…

Located in the Mediterranean Sea, the Italian islands of Sicily and Sardinia both experience an arid, Mediterranean climate. High-altitude vineyards located on both islands are the preferred viticultural sites due to their large diurnal swings, which allow for acid retention and increased freshness. For many years, Sicily's reputation was built on the fortified wine Marsala. But recently, Sicily has gained recognition for its quality table wines. The region’s red wines are quite successful, with notable elegance, sweet tannins and impressive balance. Sicily’s only DOCG, Cerasuolo di Vittoria, is a blend based on the island’s most planted grape, Nero d’Avola, and the grapey Frappato. A strong Spanish influence is evident in Sardinia’s wines — Cannonau (Grenache) and Carignano (Carignan) both have Spanish roots. The white Vermentino, which is also thought to be of Spanish origin, is the main variety in the…
