Italian Blends

If you’ve ever been to Italy, you’ll find it easy to make the case that it is the finest wine producing country on the planet…or at least the best in which to visit if you love wine, food, history, espresso and hilltops.  The unique number of grapes makes for endless combinations from endless aspects, altitudes, climates, soil types and stylistic impressions.  From the boisterous wines of Etna (who can beat vineyards on an exploding volcano…like, come on!) to the savory blends of Tuscany to the exotic and perfectly stoic blends of Boca in Northern Piedmont; there is no lack of delicious choice in Italy.  Go get them!
