Taste how a white from Frascati differs from a Tuscan white, or how a Brunello differs from a Sangiovese. Learn about the different grapes and climates and processes that go into creating wine, and how they are classified. The wine trade is heavily regulated in Italy – and there is a big difference between a vino da Tavola (table wine) and a DOCG the highest quality wine meaning Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita.
