Italian wine is one of the most prestigious and expensive wines in the world, with just a few select wines able to command large sums of money. However, a single bottle of wine can cost anywhere from $10, to the hundreds of dollars. Using the bottle by the bottle method, some of these very expensive wines can be found in the $10-$15 range. The most expensive wine in the world will cost roughly $2,000.

The perfect Napa Valley wine is a tough nut to crack, and you’ll find no shortage of opinions when it comes to the best producers. But there are certain varietals that are consistently ranked among the best in the world year after year. Brunello di Montalcino , a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, is one of these wines.

Tuscany, home of famous wines like the Chianti Classico and the Brunello di Montalcino, is a hotbed of delicious red wines. But these famous neighborhoods have strict rules that often stifle creativity and the desire to constantly push the boundaries.

As an example of wines that are not susceptible to color blindness, look for bottles with regional names on the label, such as Toscana IGT (Indicazione Geografica Tipica). This category includes premium supertuscans for your cellar, or easy-drinking, sparkling reds suitable for everyday drinking.
