Italian wine is beloved across the globe and for good reason. Since the days of Ancient Rome, Italy has been a producer of incredible wines and is perhaps still the most esteemed wine-producing region on the planet.
At House of Townend we have hand-selected wine from Italy that will entice and delight all taste palettes – from fruity reds to crisp whites. Italy denotes key characteristics of its wines on the label:
Italy is home to a variety of stunning regions that all produce unique wines. From Abruzzo and Lazio to Tuscany and Lombardy, there are styles to suit all tastes in the country that brought wine to the world. Italian white wine includes such classics as Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay through to moscatto and the world’s favourite fizz: Prosecco.
Italian Prosecco is one of the UK’s favourite drinks, beloved at parties and functions as well as in the home. It’s a more accessible alternative to Champagne and is a refreshing, light drink that is entirely unique to Italy. With nine different regions producing prosecco, we have selected only the finest Italian prosecco options for our customers.
Italian red wines are as varied as its regions, offering everything from complex Tuscany wines made with the Sangiovese grape through to lighter Barbera bottles. Italian rosé, made with a blend of white and red grapes, is perhaps not as well-known but there are some incredible options such as Pinot Grigio Rosé and Il Fresco Rosé.
With wines from Italy offering so much depth in terms of variety and flavour, it is hard to make a ‘wrong’ choice. If you would, however, like guidance around your selection, feel free to contact us today to be advised on all things Italian wine.
