Italy's wine history was cemented in antiquity when the ancient Greeks dubbed the peninsula "oenotria", a reference to the Boot's ideal climates and topography for growing grapes. Today, Italy is one of the three most important wine producing countries in the world, next to the United States and France. Until a few years ago, Italy was the world's largest producer by volume, until France claimed that spot. However, the sheer number of indigenous grape varietals in Italy is unrivaled.

While vines are grown nearly everywhere on the peninsula, there are a handful of regions that have distinguished themselves as sources of world-class wine. Tuscany is perhaps Italy's most famous wine-growing area and its most scenic. The Sangiovese-based wines of Chianti are the most well-known, but Brunello di Montalcino is considered the apex of quality for Tuscan Sangiovese. The Bordeaux varietal "Super Tuscan" blends are also among the world's most collectible red wines.

Just north, Piedmont is the home of Italy's most regal red varietal, Nebbiolo, and the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco are highly coveted for their inimitable aromatics and age-worthy structure. The Barbera grape also thrives here in the Asti and Alba zones. Meanwhile, several other regions have also carved out specialties, including the steely, refreshing white wines of Friuli, Marche, and Alto-Adige, and the rustic, old-school red wines of Umbria, Campania, and the Veneto. With such a lengthy latitudinal distribution and so many distinct micro-climates, Italy is the most varied and unique wine-producing nation on Earth.

Mascarello/Bartolo Barolo 2014  (#333215)

Nebbiolo from Piedmont, Italy

[ 95 points Wine Enthusiast: This lovely radiant Barolo is another showstopper despite the difficulties of the cool wet vintage. It's incredibly elegant, with alluring scents of perfumed blue flower, rose petal, woodland berry and a whiff of menthol. The focused graceful palate boasts fantastic tension, showing wild strawberry, crushed raspberry, star anise and cinnamon framed in taut polished tannins and vibrant acidity.

Antinori Chianti Classico Villa Antinori Riserva 2013  (#332772)

Sangiovese from Tuscany, Italy

[ 91 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): Based in an authentic sense of territory, the 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot - although Renzo Cotarella tells me that the goal is to soon make this wine 100% Sangiovese. The bouquet is generous and nicely concentrated with dark fruit nuances and succulent spice at the back. Delicate floral nuances of wild rose and violets are given ample room for expression.

Antichi Vigneti di Cantalupo Ghemme Collis Carellae 2010  (#332761)

Nebbiolo from Piedmont, Italy

[ 95 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): The 2010 Collis Carellae is a reference point wine, not just for Ghemme, but for all of Italy. Mysterious and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2010 opens up beautifully over time, revealing myriad shades of dimension. Although quite finessed and lifted in feel, the 2010 has more than enough depth and persistence to allow it to age gracefully for many years to come. Hints of orange peel, sweet red cherry and mint develop effortlessly, but it is the wine's overall feel that I find most alluring. Specifically, the tannins while present, are remarkably integrated into the wine's fabric. Drink: 2020-2040.

Conterno/Giacomo Barolo Cascina Francia 2007  (#320832)

Nebbiolo from Piedmont, Italy

[ 96+ points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2007 Barolo Cascina Francia is an unusual version of this benchmark wine. In 2007 Conterno decided against bottling his Monfortino. Conterno believes Nebbiolo can handle rain and humidity (hence his decision to make Monfortino in rainy years such as 1987 and 2002), but not drought. The result is a Cascina Francia that is unusually dark, rich and powerful. The floral, herbal notes that are typical in young Cascina Francia have been replaced by deeper notes of tar, smoke and licorice to match the layers of intense dark fruit. The 2007 is powerful and imposing from start to finish. It is going to be a fascinating Barolo to follow over the coming years and decades. Cascina Francia is often accessible for the first year or two after it has been bottled. That has not been my experience with the 2007. It seems already headed for a period of dormancy. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2037. (Oct 2011) ] 96+ points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2007 Barolo Cascina Francia is an unusual version of this benchmark wine.
