 Italy has a wider selection of wines than anywhere else in the world, with up to 2,000 unique grapes grown across the country. Italy is most famous for wines made from its indigenous grapes. Classic Italian red wines include Barolo and Barbaresco (both made from the Nebbiolo grape), Chianti and Chianti Classico (from the Sangiovese grape), and Nero d’Avola wine (the Nero d’Avola grape).  Italy is also famous for its sparkling wines: Prosecco (produced from the grape Glera) and Moscato (from Moscato Bianco). In terms of Italian white wines, the most famous is Pinot Grigio which is made from the grape of the same name. Italy also successfully makes wines from international grape varieties such Merlot, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
