11/10/2019

Looking to stock your wine bar with some great Italian wines? Here are the top 10 Italian wines of 2019 for your wine bar.

Italy is the largest global producer of wine, and completely un-ironically, is also home to some of the most divine, fine wines. 

There is an Italian proverb which says, “Anni e bicchieri di vino non-si contano mai” - which means age and glasses of wine should never be counted. This proverb by Italians might sound like an excuse to drink more than one glass of wine but, no doubt, it is also an invitation to fully enjoy life. 

Let us take a tour of the top 10 Italian wines of 2019 for your wine bar.

Amarone della Valpolicella Docg Classico Riserva represents the full expression of the Veronese tradition and the more than century-old family legacy.

Amarone della Valpolicella Docg Classico Riserva has a ruby-red hue with garnet reflections. The effect of preserved cherry, spices, and dried rose petals lend complexity and elegance to the nose. The mouth of the wine has warmth and is subtle. Well-structured, balanced by smooth tannins, and with a high alcohol content - this wine adds an elegant acidity and freshness.
