The perfect sub for lovers of aged white rioja. N: Caramel Corn, butter, oxidized fruit, and funky leesy magnificence. P: Great acid, stays cleanish, but some really fun funky oxidized fruit. F: Needs some food and some openmindedness, but a must try for lovers of this style.

From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
