Piedmont, located in the northwest corner of the Italian peninsula, is known for the production of great wines. Among the most famous of these wines is Barolo, often called the “king of wines and the wine of kings.”
Some of Southern Italy’s most interesting white wines come from the Campania region. One of my favorite whites is Fiano di Avellino, a DOCG wine made from the Fiano grape. In Naples it is a top choice to go with many local dishes, especially seafood.
Morellino di Scansano is a red wine that does not get the recognition it deserves.Often overlooked because of the popularity of other wines based on the Sangiovese grape from Tuscany, Morellino di Scansano is a much better value for the money.
