Italy is the largest producer of wines in the world. In fact it is more like a continent than a country when it comes to viticulture. Here you have a country that has only been a unified nation for a little more than 150 years and is comprised of 20 or regions, each of which has its own clutch of grape varieties, climates and cultures. No other country has as many grape varieties, appellations (known as DOCs or DOCGs here), wine producers, or climates as Italy leading to an unparalleled variety of wines.
We have conveniently broken down our range into each region.

Luigi Giordano 'Asili'
A brilliant value, semi-mature Barbaresco from one the region's top single vineyard sites. Luigi Giordano is under the radar, but not for long. Perfect for drinking now or over the next decade, this is a very fine Barbaresco.
