  • Amarone
    A dry, full-bodied wine, Amarone is made from partially dried Corvina grapes. It has a slight fruitiness and pairs well with rich foods and full-flavored cheeses.


  • Barbaresco
    Barbaresco is a taut wine that perfect for those put off by heavier red wines. It is made from Nebbiolo grapes, which are aged for one year in wood and are best when consumed between eight and 15 years of age.


  • Barbera
    Barbera is available in many varieties. It can be dry or light- or medium-bodied with a fruity berry flavor and a lot of acidity and can pair with a broad variety of foods.


  • Bardolino
    Cheerful and uncomplicated light red wine from the south eastern shores of lake Garda in the veneto region of north east Italy.


  • Barolo
    Barolo is a dry, full-bodied wine. It has many different scents and flavors, ranging from herbs to berries, and is usually a deep red color. Barolo, like Barbaresco, is made from Nebbiolo grapes.


  • Brunello di Montalcino

  • Chianti Classico
    Chianti is a medium-bodied, dry wine made from Sangiovese or Canaiolo grapes. Chiantis typically feature flavors of cherry, plum, spice, vanilla, coffee, almonds and tobacco and tend to appeal to those who like dry yet fruity wines that are not overly heavy.
