Red wine lovers only!
Are you a red wine lover? F4Y helps you find your way among the great variety of Italian red wines. Here you can find the list of the top 100 Italian wines that Gentleman – Class Editori, a monthly magazine, draws up every year combining the choices of the most eminent food and wine guides: Gambero Rosso, l’Espresso, Veronelli, Bibenda, Vitae, Daniele Cernilli and Luca Maroni.
What emerges from this reliable list is a return to tradition. At the Top of the list we find yet again an Italian evergreen classic – Sassicaia. Tuscany registered an outstanding performance with its 46 oenological jewels and turned out to be still the perfect area for red wines. Both Piemonte and Veneto lagged behind expectations. Piemonte only got 18 wines on the list and Veneto – used to definitely different results – got only 3.
Dear wine lovers, here you can find something you can seek your teeth into:
Which are the most credited wines among the top 100 Italian reds?
