What can be compared with the abundance and variety of Italian cuisine? Only Italian wine. Countless varieties, tastes and shades can excite the imagination of even experienced tasters. Young and seasoned, red and white, sweet and dry – everyone will find Italian wines to suit your taste and pocket. Today, Italian wines are the most common in the world, ahead of their main competitors – France and Spain. No one produces more wine than the Italians (every third bottle drunk in the world is their production). Here, centuries-old traditions, experience and modern technologies are successfully applied.

If other peoples of winemaking originated within states, here the whole state was formed “around the vine” – Ancient Rome. Although the Italians were not pioneers of wine, they managed to develop winemaking to an incredible scale. And from about 3000 years already, winemaking has been one of the main crafts in the country. Starting from the 16th and 17th centuries, special attention was paid to legislative regulation of the production process, but the production method remained practically unchanged, and storage in barrels was the exception rather than the case. As a result, Italian wines are often classified as “budget” wines. But in recent decades, a new course has been taken to improve technology.

Italian wines in Kazakhstan

Nowadays, there are about 20 wine regions that produce about 3.5 thousand types of wine. Due to the differences in the soils on which the vine grows, the climatic conditions and the cultivation of different grape varieties, each of the resulting drinks has its own unique taste, aroma and character. Along with the change in technology, the culture of wine consumption in Italy itself has changed: in a quantitative comparison, there has been a sharp decline, but now preference is given to higher-quality representatives of Italian wines.

In our materials we have already told in more detail about the history of Italian winemaking.


Table wines – a drink whose manufacture is not regulated by law (there are no clear definitions of the composition).
Local division is relative to the area of ​​production. Quality and type are not subject to verification.
By origin. The first category, which was approved by law. Adding sugar in the production of this drink is prohibited. Quality and authenticity is checked by the tasting commission.
By origin with warranty. The highest category. Bottles of wine of this type are easily recognizable by the red mark, indicating the number and name of the wine.
Italian wines have their business card – wine kyanti. Its popularity goes far beyond the borders of the motherland. There are several methods of manufacturing kyanti. The most ancient or “governo al Toscano”: already prepared wine is mixed with wort from dried grapes. Due to re-fermentation, a unique taste and floral aroma is acquired. This technique gradually goes down in history, and increasingly use the extract in oak barrels.
