Italian wine producers distinguish themselves throughout the world for their craft, professionalism and passion, elements that are transferred to every single bottle they produce. The solidity of their reputation has put Italy among the top two producing countries globally, with France as its main rival. However, Italy stands alone as the world’s largest wine exporter, which means that Italian wine producers are incredibly adept at securing international distribution, and that their products satisfy millions of consumers worldwide. Riding on the crest of this wave, new markets in China, Russia and Latin America have combined with those in the US and Europe to offer staggeringly unique opportunities for the country’s winemakers to share their products. Italy is home to some of the most renowned producers, varieties and labels, with each region offering its own microcosm of traditions and tastes, reflecting the characteristics of the land, climate and palate of each individual place. Whether you prefer Nebbiolo, Amarone, Chianti, Grecco di Tufo or Primitivo, there is always room for discovery when looking closer at the able hands behind your favourite wines.
