With love from Italy...

Seductive treasures that have

A land of plenty...

Italy is home to many icons such as Barolo and Chianti but it also offers a wealth of hidden gems that rarely make it to Britain. So I'm delighted to present you with both superior classics and the stars of tomorrow.

You can choose from time-honoured, crisp Soave and smooth Montepulciano to exciting lesser-known styles such as honey blossom and citrus-rich Greco di Tufo from Campania or the black cherry scented Nero di Troia from Puglia. And today you can also enjoy fantastic savings.

About Italy

Video: Italy regional wine guide

Italy is, without doubt, the most diverse and exciting wine producing country in the world. Each and every region has its own specific wines and identity, offering something to please every palate. It’s the source of iconic wines such as Barolo and Chianti, but also has many other hidden gems.

The appeal of Italian wine is steadily broadening from the traditional styles to the less well-known wines such as the citrus and honey-scented Greco di Tufo from Campania and the black cherry flavours of Nero di Troia from Puglia.

The climate in Italy varies wildly from north to south, creating the cooler elegance of Gavi and Barolo in Piedmont, classic Chianti from warm Tuscany and the juicy, ripe Nero D’Avola from sun-drenched Sicily.
