Favorita serves up more than just authentic Italian food. They also have an impressive selection of fine Italian wines. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a home-style meal and a glass (or two!) of some of the world’s best wines. 

Fine Italian wines are among the most exported products in the world. And it's no wonder why. Not only is Italian wine known for its quality, but there are countless varieties to choose from. Italy might not be a big country but each region produces different grapes, which are used to create distinct wines – from red to white to rosé. 

Thankfully, there’s no need to travel all the way to Italy just to enjoy a glass of the country’s famous wines because at Favorita there are all sorts of affordable and excellent Italian wines to sample. 

Italian red wines are some of the most famous and recognized in the world. Even simple table wines have become a staple on dinner tables across the world. 

Table wines aside, there are tons of famous wines available. Two of the most well-known of Italy’s red wines are Valpolicella and Montepulciano. These two regions are known for their signature grapes and bold flavors. Northern Italy produces the full-bodied Nebbiolo d'alba and Barolo, which are both from Piedmont. Barolo in particular is famous throughout Europe and was rumored to have been the most popular wine among nobles. Central Italy is famous for its Chianti Classico and Brunello thanks to Tuscany. And in the south Sardinia is famed for its Cannonau, a type of Grenache.

Despite creating some of the best red wines in the world, Italy’s white wines are nothing to scoff at. The Franciacorta is the most renowned Italian white wine in the world, as it’s produced with grapes from Chardonnay. And who doesn't love a nice chilled glass of pinot noir or pinot grigio? Central Italy is famed for Verdicchio and the ultra-rare Cinque Terre Ligure. And in the south, the Greco di Tufo of Avellino is the star.

If you're in the mood to sample some of the best Italian wines, head on over to Favorita. And while you're at it, why not pair that glass of wine with one of Favorita's excellent Italian dishes?
