ITALIAN WINES

Let us take you to the Land of Wines.

“Italian Winesare distinctly unique. They are so “Italian!” They have a taste and character all their own, something attributable to Italy’s many different grape varieties, (somewhere between 900-1000 in all), the soil and climatic conditions, as well as the various production techniques that have evolved since the Greeks first brought the wine to Italy almost 3000 years ago. They were so impressed that they named the country “Enotria Tellus", the Land of Vines.

With 20 different regions producing wines, some are still produced from a single grape while others are a blend of two or more varieties and are impossible to duplicate elsewhere.

Tuscany

Set in the mountainous beauty, where olive trees, vines, and sweetly scented cypress trees populate the hillside, Tuscany is the spiritual home of Sangiovese and Chianti. The air is magnified and the light brilliantly vivid, a reminder that these hills were once home to the likes of Michelangelo and Leonardo.
