When I do get jaded it’s usually the middle-of-the-road wines that begin to bore me; over-priced wines that under deliver. The less expensive wines continue to reward my palate, given the modest expectations they bring with them. But in a way, being jaded isn’t always a bad thing, it sets you up to be wowed by the next great thing that crosses your palate.
So that begs the question of which wines never fail to make me say wow. It’s a great question and one that encouraged me to put together a list; a bucket list of sorts. These are wines that you have to try if you want to experience the best of the world.
Let’s kick things off today with my bucket list of Italian wines. How many wines can you cross off of your bucket list?
