Ideal Italian Wines for Summer at Uncorked LA 90+

The majority of the wines at Uncorked LA 90+ are going to be from the Golden State, but we cannot wait to try the selected Italian wineries present at the event.

Villa Pozzi, from Sicily, will be bringing some wines made with Moscato – all about crisp flavors and smell of figs, apricot, orange blossom; and a Pinot Grigio – with its lime and white peach aromas. The winery will also bring some indigenous wines from the island that Freud defined as “a great delight.” So be prepared to taste wines you will love with some of that amazing seafood you can find in Southern California.


Tenuta Polvaro from Veneto, the region that gave us Prosecco, and will be bringing its own version of this wine – because nothing pairs with summer better than Prosecco for Italians, and it’s perfect for preparing all those cocktails like Spritz and Negroni that we love. The winery will also bring their Pinot Grigio, a great occasion to try it side by side with the Sicilian one!

Last but not least, Medici Ermete Winery will be every Lambrusco drinker’s dream, and for those who still don’t know about this amazing grape variety, trust me, you will never get enough of it. Either in a red or rosé style, this floral and crisp sparkling wine from Emilia Romagna will make you fall in love. Perfect to be enjoyed during happy hour on its own, or paired with Italian charcuterie and Parmigiano Reggiano – a feast for your eyes and your stomach!
