Italian Wine Collection Barolo
2019 Giacomo Conterno Monfortino
Italy is home of a huge array of wines, regions,
grapevarieties and wine styles. From the misty, lush rolling hills ofthe north to the sun-drenched hills of Tuscany, Umbria, theMarche and Abruzzo, to the southern lands of Puglia,Calabria and Basilicata, while not forgetting the islands of Sicily and Sardinia. Italy's vineyards are home to more than 2,000 grape varieties, many of which are on the
brink of extinction. The safest and best-known Italiangrapes are Sangiovese, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Montepulciano and Pinot
Grigio.When we think of Italian wine two words spring to mind: diversity and tradition. It’s important to understand
something of the history of excellence from Italy's unique terroirs.
