Wine - every region has it's treasures
Limoncello - intensely lemon-flavored liqueur most famously associated with and produced in Sorrento, the Amalfi coast, and the island of Capri
Grappa - popular alcoholic drink; The main ingredient of grappa is pomace, which consists of the grape skins, seeds and stalks that are left over from the winemaking process. These are taken through a second process of distillation, which extracts the remaining flavours from the pomace before the waste is discarded. The grappa is then either bottled at once, which creates white grappa (grappa bianca), or aged in wooden casks to create the yellow or brown-hued grappa known as riserva.
Sambuca - anise-flavoured, usually colourless, liqueur created in Civitavecchia, a port city north of Rome
Amaro - Amaro Montenegro is a traditional amaro distilled in Bologna, Italy. Amaro Lucano S.p.A., a family-owned company based in Pisticci, Basilicata.
Prosecco - is not champagne. The name Prosecco is derived from the Italian village of Prosecco near Trieste, where the grape and wine is said to have originated. Prosecco DOC is produced in nine provinces spanning the Venetoand Friuli Venezia Giulia regions.
