Primitivo

This red wine packs a spicy punch because of its high alcohol content and tannins. It’s hearty and bold, much like the people of Puglia where it originates.


Primitivo grapes grow in warm temperatures that produce concentrated flavors, leading to a high-quality wine. Enjoy it with pasta dishes cooked in tomato sauce, lamb or barbecued meats. Primitivo is perfect for cold winter nights.

Lambrusco

This Italian drink is the ultimate party starter. Made from the grapes grown in Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, Lambrusco is a fizzy wine.

It's light and refreshing, which makes it ideal for sipping on hot summer days. Pair it with charcuterie, light salads, and seafood or any dish that needs a quick pick-me-up.

Campari


Nestled within the boot of Italy, beautiful vineyards produce some of the world's best wines. And, let's not forget the refreshing Italian drinks

Looking for a bittersweet punch-me-up? Look no further than Campari, the OG Italian aperitif from the 1800s.


It's an acquired taste, but that bitter bite is what makes bitter cocktails, baby! Mix it up with gin or soda and finish it off with a fancy orange slice. Sip it before dinner and feel like a boss.


Bellini


For a fruity twist on a classic cocktail, try Bellini. This refreshing drink comprises equal parts of peach puree and Prosecco. The Bellini is an iconic cocktail that originated in Harry's Bar in Venice. It's a perfect light drink to serve alongside baked goods for breakfast or brunch.

Barolo



This Italian drink is known for its captivating aroma, rich flavor, and unusual complexity. Barolo hails from the Northern Piedmont region of Italy, and it's one of Italy's most prestigious wines.


It takes ten years for a Barolo to fully mature and develop its unique flavor. This luxurious wine pairs well with hard cheeses or rich game meats.

Conclusion:


From bold and spicy Primitivo to refreshing and fizzing Lambrusco, Italy has an endless list of drinks and wines to offer.


Whether you're seeking aperitifs, liqueurs, or classic wines, the Italian culture will leave you mesmerized. So, what are you waiting for? Explore Italy, and indulge your taste buds with these delectable Italian drinks and wine. Cheers!
