1 Night In Italia!
We are jet setting across Italy! We will head north to begin our wine country tour in the Gavi region of Piedmont at Villa Sparina to enjoy some bubbly. Next, our quest for sparkling wine takes us to central Italy to Arrezo’s Il Borro Winery in Tuscany. Then we are off to the southern island of Sicily for Planeta’s red blend made from 2 of my favorite varietals. As we return north, our Night in Italy concludes in Valpolicella in the Veneto with a glass of Giusti’s Amarone. Andiamo!
