Varietal: Barbera

For centuries, wineries in Italy have prized their excellent Barbera grapes. This is a particularly vigorous varietal which grows well on many different soil types, so long as it has enough exposure to a Mediterranean style climate, with long, hot summers ideal for ripening the fruit and intensifying their unique flavors Barbera grapes are much loved in their native Italy and in many of the New World countries which are beginning to experiment with them, and their popularity has soared over recent years as more and more people are discovering their intense flavors of blueberries, raspberries and dried fruits. Many wineries prefer to age their grape juiced in oak barrels, which causes the Barbera varietal to pick up intense and spicy notes of vanilla and other such flavors, making for a delightfully complex yet light bodied wine perfect for drinking on sunny days.

Region: Piedmont

Situated in the north-western part of Italy, the region of Piedmont is known worldwide and is highly respected for the quality of the wines produced there. Many of the most successful sub-regions in Piedmont produce many of the world's finest red wines, such as those made from the excellent Nebbiolo grape varietal in areas such as Barolo and Barbaresco. However, the historic wineries which typify this region use a relatively wide variety of grapes, including Dolcetto and Barbera for their red wines, which are typically aged and have a delightful velvety character. Piedmont isn't all about beautifully complex red wines, though, as it is also famed for high quality, elegant sparkling wines, notably the Asti wines made with the white Moscato grape. The region benefits from a range of terroirs which are often well expressed in the sparkling wines, and a wonderfully consistent climate ideal for vineyard cultivation.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
