In Italy each region has its own set of rules and guidelines. Not to mention there are hundreds of indigenous grape varieties in Italy, how can one begin to understand them all? It can be overwhelming.
I’ve learned the only way to tackle learning about this country is one region at a time. By starting small. I’ve also been very lucky to have had the chance to visit several regions in Italy in the last couple years, which has given me a level of understanding of these regions I couldn’t have imagined prior to these experiences.
