Italian Reds: Other Italian Red Varieties

If you’re looking for adventure, Italy is always a go-to with over 1,000 different varieties and massive climate, altitude, and soil differences throughout the boot. It’s fun to flirt with old faithfuls, like nebbiolo, and plunder the almost-forgotten, like Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. Even the modern styles still show their fundamental “Italian-ness”, with a whiff of cherry and dusty earth here and there across the spectrum of body, tannin, acidity, and much more. Matt Browman
