In the beginning it was the Cirò Boys. It was the Nineties and theirs was a reverse revolution. They were a group of producers - which today we would define as ante litteram natural wine producers - who wanted to reaffirm the primacy of tradition and the gaglioppo grape. Having abandoned the small oak barrels and the use (sometimes abuse) of chemis...

When most people think of Italian Riesling, the wines from the northeastern Trentino-Alto Adige spring to mind. Yet, producers in the gently undulating valleys of Lombardy’s Oltrepò Pavese are bottling some of the country’s most vibrant examples of the grape.

The night before we arrived at Locanda La Raia, a winery and boutique hotel just north of the tiny town of Gavi, we had dinner with two Italian friends at their Milan apartment. When we told them we were spending the next few days in Piedmont, their reactions were spontaneously enthusiastic. “It’s as beautiful as Tuscany but not yet as discovered.”...

On one side we are in one of the best cru of Fiano di Avellino, specifically contrada Arianello where there was once a so-called "neviera" : a well where snow was gathered to store food. From this area, today comes a spectacular Fiano di Avellino Nevier...

Italian wine shipments, in the first 8 months 2022, still lose speed, but do not stop, continuing on the path of particularly solid double-digit growth in its target markets, from the United States to Great Britain, with Japan becoming the positive exception to an Asia in obvious difficulty. It emerges from the WineNews analysis of the latest Istat...

The Chianti area, although not very large, is a rich territory in many ways. That’s why, a itinerary through the hills of Chianti is a holiday to do at least once in your life. Do the thousands of tourists who visit the Chianti to spend their Italian holidays. The best time, however, to organize your tour is definitely autumn, whose mild temperatur...
