Class 3 Review: Southern Italy

What a wonderful experience. The wines captured the sunny southern regions of Italy but still brought surprising flavors and twists.

Southern Italy's history as a trading and import crossroads brought an unequaled array of non-native grape varietals to the area, making it one of the most biologically diverse regions. The wines of Campania, Puglia, Basilicata, and Calabria are generally lesser known than those of the north, but insiders will tell you they represent some of the best values on any list or shelf.
