Recently, the situation has changed radically and the Italy winery is now famous all over the world. Winemakers keep emphasis on the traditional vines, taken the authentic treasures of their ancient land and enhanced them in the modern wine, which aromas and flavors are not to be experienced anywhere else.
Nowadays, experts increasingly rate Italy's premier wine among the world's finest one. There are special Italian wine tours to know more about the Italy winery for wine lovers. The price is different, depending on the place from eight to forty US dollars.
Castello di Brolio (South of Gaiole in Chianti) is the Italy winery that made the first true Chianti Classico in the mid-19th century. The Ricasoli family had been the owner of the castle since 1141 until it was sold to a large corporation for the mass production of wine. In 1993 the family bought it back from Seagrams, and since that time it has become one of the Italy's best wine producers. Their focus is on only one type of wine (their Chianti is made one hundred percent of sangiovese grapes).
Castello di Verrazzano (south of Impruneta and north of Greve in Chianti) has been producing wine since 1170.
Castello di Vicchiomaggio (south of Impruneta and north of Greve in Chianti), dating back to 957 AD, produces wine and offers tours for the cellars, wine tasting and cooking classes.
Monsanto (West of Castellina in Chianti) offers Chianti and Chardonnay types of wine, rated as some of the best in the region.
Villa Vignamaggio (Southeast of Greve in Chianti) is surrounded by cypress trees and gardens. Today, it is considered one of the top vineyards in the region.

Unfortunately, spending more money on buying wine cannot promise buying a perfect one, at the same time, usually, cheaper wine is not a bargain. Why? The answer is very simple: the taste is quite different from the real Italian wine because it is made of cheaper and worse grapes. "What wine shall I choose for a party?" The site www.wineeducation.com advises on an equally huge number of wine, which is made of Trebianno grape and the Super-Tuscan wine that is surely expensive. However, do not you think that the taste of the real Italian wine costs it? Buy Italian wine and you will never forget the taste of it!!!
