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.
