You'd think that when it comes to Italian wine, Italians themselves would be the number one consumer. Not so! Reuters reports that the United States has now claimed the top spot when it comes to enjoying wines from Italy. What are the wines behind this development? Managing Director of Vinitaly Stevie Kim revealed, "It is Prosecco that is driving sales right now. It was pulled in by Moscato." And who is pushing the sales needle here? According to Kim, it's millennials.
But while the sweet and fizzy may be dominating sales, don't forget about the wide variety of Italian wines beyond the ubiquitous. Why not try a bottle of Falanghina by Mastroberardino? This white wine from Campania is fantastic with seafood.
