“Italian wine is beloved by sommeliers because no other wine nation in the world has such viticultural diversity. There are grape varieties specific to single provinces, even single towns! In terms of exploration – which is what being a sommelier is all about – nothing compares to Italy. Moreover, the overall quality level of the wines continues to rise; they’re not just good because they’re weird, they’re good because they’re good!” SommSelect Editorial Director David Lynch said.
