Italy

Italy has some of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world. Etruscans and Greek settlers produced wine in the country long before the Romans started developing their own vineyards in the 2nd century BC. Roman grape-growing and winemaking was prolific and well-organized, pioneering large-scale production and storage techniques like barrel-making and bottling.

Orlando Abrigo Nebbiolo Settevie 2008

Settevie - the meeting point of no fewer than seven roads - is the old name for the hamlet where the winery is located. The wine's style is contemporary: deep ruby red, with elegant aromas recalling raspberries when it is young, while after maturing in wood its bouquet becomes more balanced and refined. Opening recommended two to six years after the vintage, though it can be kept longer.
