This one caught me off guard, as I wasn't anticipating tasting such an impressive red from the island of Lipari, located off the coast of Sicily. Over 80 percent of Caravaglio's Corinto vines are at least 150 years old, as the volcanic soils prevent vine disease and the maritime winds keep the vines healthy. This rich and deeply flavored red boasts waves of plum and dark berry fruit, exotic spices and mild ripe tannins that round it out. It's a lot of wine for the price and a rare treat from one of the world's unspoiled isles.

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. 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. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
