Italian wine is known to produce some of the best old world wines in the world. Italy is such a diverse country when it comes to wine making brining 1000’s of known and indigenous grapes to the world of wine.
Here at Corks Out, we feel that Italian wine is under-represented in the UK and want to remedy the situation. We have sourced many high quality wines and made them available to buy online, providing the wine-growing country with the platform it deserves while giving you the chance to try everything from the familiar charms of Pinot Grigio to the brooding power of 'Super Tuscan's'.
Land of Reds
Italy has a great selection of full-bodied reds, which work perfectly with rich savoury foods. Within our Italian wine selection, you can find:
• Amarone - an intense wine where the grapes are pressed after being sundried, causing the juice to evaporate to create a concentrated fruity, sweet flavour.
• Barolo - revealing its real charm once aged, this powerful yet elegant wine comes with complex aromas and flavours, ranging from strawberries to coffee and dark chocolate.
• Chianti - made from Sangiovese grapes, the wines from Chianto Classico zones are usually considered the best, with firm tannins and a distinctive cherry flavour.
• Valpolicella - the Corvina grapes result in intense cherry and dark chocolate notes, while the Ripasso wines are made similarly to Amarone, producing a concentrated, sweet juice.
We also have a great selection of Barbera wines, including the Barbera Poderi Alasia Il Cascinone Rive which comes with a pleasant combination of berries, natural acidity and a little tannin.
What about Italian white wines?
Whether you are looking for a glass of bubbly or something crisp and dry, Italy produces such an incredible range of white wines, you are sure to find something to your taste.
The classic Pinot Grigio is a firm favourite here at Corks Out, as the light, crisp wine is a refreshing accompaniment to food and also the perfect aperitif. We also have a great range of the ever-popular and versatile Prosecco, with its soft, smooth mousse and super fine bubbles. You can also find some interesting Soave wines that are well worth a try - clean and fresh with great fruitiness.
