Italy has the oldest and richest wine heritage in the world, with vast amounts of land traditionally used for wine production. Italy produces a huge quantity of wine of many different varieties. Winemaking in Italy dates back to before 200 years BC.

Italy as a peninsula provides an excellent environment for viticulture. Italian lakes and mountains are perfect for thousands of varieties of grapes to thrive and flourish. Years of expertise and an eye for quality have helped in cultivating grapes perfectly in sync with the climatic conditions.

To better manage and control wine production and distribution, the Italian government has designated twenty provinces. All of these provinces produce wine, some are known for the quantity while others more for the quality. Of these, the most notable provinces are Tuscany, Veneto, Emilia Romagna and Piedmont.

Some of the most world renowned brands of wine are Italian. Tuscany takes pride in Chianti, Brunello and Vino Nobile while Veneto produces the famous Amarone della Valpolicella.

Italian wines are broadly categorized into four groups based more so on the region and expertise than the type of grapes used. These are Vini Da Tavola (VDT), Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT), Denominazione d'Origine Controllata (DOC), and Denominazione d'Origine Controllata e Garanta (DOCG).

Italy is well known for its broad range of wine. It is the second largest producer and exporter of wine, after France. With over 2000 varieties of grapes, it can be said that Italy has definitely made the best of available resources and given the world an unmatched collection of delicious wines.

Italian wines, unlike the intricate categorization involved in French winemaking, are classified into four main categories. These are based on geographies and expertise.

• Vini Da Tavola (VDT) — these are table wines. These wines are not geographically restricted and the bottles must specify the age and the location of produce.
• Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT) — these Italian wines are region specific and the method of production is controlled and regulated.
• Denominazione d'Origine Controllata (DOC) — these wines are from specific regions within the IGT geography. These locations can be exclusive and may have rare varieties of grapes.
• Denominazione d'Origine Controllata e Garanta (DOCG) — these are DOC's that have been consistent for ten years thus guaranteeing elite quality.

Aside from these categories you can buy Italian wine based on the type of grape used i.e. Bianco, the white variety or Rosso, the red variety.

We have a wide variety of Italian wines available. WineStyle provides an array of information regarding the type, vintage, and grapes used.
