We take a virtual trip around the vineyards of Italy, starting in the North with a Prosecco from the Veneto region, a lovely range of wines from Tuscany including a white, and a classic from the region, Chianti. We take a detour to Sicily with 2 fabulous wines, typical of the region.
The wines we talk about include the following – which we match with cheese and salami…amongst other wonderful food ideas
Di Maria Prosecco DOC NV: a pale light yellow colour, with fine perlage. Delicately fruity, slightly aromatic bouquet .Well balanced and light body. A real crowd pleaser.
