OVERVIEW

One of today’s trendiest spirits, limoncello is a lemony liqueur with roots in Italy’s Amalfi coast. There, on the gorgeous hillsides that rise sharply from the sea, and on the nearby island of Capri, lemon groves produce the fragrant and sweet Ovale di Sorrento lemon. For generations, local residents have crafted their own limoncello using these oversized, juicy lemons.

One of our favorite producers of Chianti, Bellini, searched throughout Italy to find the best recipe to make its own limoncello. The result is a liqueur that is sweet and lemony, vibrant and refreshing. Store your Bellini Limoncello in the freezer and serve it ice cold as an after-dinner treat.

Umbria, in central Italy, is bordered on the west by Tuscany and on the east by the Marches region. The Umbrian landscape is similar to Tuscany’s, producing similar styles of wine, but the region can be hotter and drier.

Orvieto, the white wine for which Umbria is best known, is made the indigenous grapes Grechetto and Trebbiano. It’s a crisp and most frequently light-bodied wine, delicious well-chilled as an aperitif or with light meals.

Sangiovese, the signature grape of neighboring Tuscany, also does well in Umbria, where it is the most-produced variety. Look for Sangiovese in everyday, food-friendly varietal wines and blends from Umbria.


Glass of Chardonnay

Every white wine grape variety can have myriad expressions, depending on where it is grown and how the winemaker chooses to style the wine. The same grape can produce both a dry white wine and a sweet white wine, one that’s crisp and refreshing or honeyed and mellow.

Most wine drinkers know the popular international varieties, like Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc, which are made into white wine in most of the world’s winemaking regions. But there are hundreds more to discover. Think of the popularity of white wines like Pinot Grigio or Moscato, which only a few years ago were largely unknown to U.S. consumers.
