Italian Wines: Taste the passion in Beijing

Italy was the fifth largest wine exporting country to China last year

Italian wine has only 7% of the Chinese wine market. Only Italian restaurants carry these wines and rarely reach out to less familiar varieties and regions. Aglianico, Barolo, Brunello, and the ubiquitous Chianti can be found with certain ease, and the sparkling Prosecco and Moscato d'Asti are available here and there. Other than that, there’s not much more. This is just the tip of the iceberg, Italy has 408 distinct wines protected by law.
