The eternal struggle between power and elegance has long shaped Italian red wines: the climate and diversity of terroirs; millennia of genius loci heritage meeting the creative and innovative power of Italian winemakers. Learn how the big Italian blockbusters are reshaping themselves towards a more lyrical and uplifted style, as forces of nature influence their flavours and character.
