Exploring Central Italy

It is very tricky to pin down Italy and its wines. Suffice to say that there is a huge diversity, writes Robert Boutlflower, and therein lies their charm. It's "every winemaker for themself", and the delights that you can discover in all regions makes the country a wine explorer's dream.
