A look at the major red wines produced in Italy

Red wine is a fixture on Italian dinner tables, and it is meant to be enjoyed alongside the delectable cuisine of the nation.

Therefore, you should make a bottle of your favorite Italian red wine part of your next meal dining out for Tuscan cuisine. Below is a brief guide to some of the most famous imported reds from Italy to consider for your dining experience.


Barolo is unique, as it is a complex, full-bodied red wine that has a characteristically light color with low opacity. Don’t let the color fool you, however, as this wine is deeply flavored with berry aromas, high tannin and a lusciously earthy appeal.


Perhaps the most famous wine hailing from Italy, Chianti is the star of the Tuscan region. Chianti is intensely dry and delightfully tart. The wine pairs nicely with a number of various dishes thanks to its medium body and moderate tannin.
