A Taste of Italy: Discover Machiavelli’s Boutique Wine List

At Machiavelli Ristorante Italiano, we believe that dining should be an immersive experience that transcends the ordinary. Nestled in the heart of Sydney, our restaurant offers a unique journey through Italy’s diverse wine regions, inviting you to explore the richness and variety of Italian viticulture. Each bottle in our boutique wine list tells a story of tradition, passion, and craftsmanship.

Tuscany: Home of Sangiovese

Your journey begins in Tuscany, a region famed for its picturesque landscapes and world-class wines. Here, you can savour the bold Chianti Classico, known for its vibrant acidity and hints of cherries and violets. For a deeper dive into Tuscany’s offerings, try Brunello di Montalcino, a wine that ages to perfection, revealing complex layers of flavour.

Piedmont: The Refinement of Nebbiolo

Next, head to Piedmont, where the Nebbiolo grape reigns supreme. Barolo and Barbaresco are the stars here, offering wines with powerful structures, deep tannins, and elegant aromas of roses, tar, and truffles. These wines are a testament to the sophistication and depth of Italian winemaking.

Veneto: Prosecco’s Sparkling Delight

Veneto is the place for those who love a good sparkle. Prosecco, with its light, crisp bubbles and notes of green apple and pear, is perfect as an aperitif or paired with various dishes. It’s a versatile favourite that adds a touch of elegance to any occasion.

Campania: The Bold Flavours of Aglianico and Fiano

Journey south to Campania, where the volcanic soils around Mount Vesuvius give birth to robust wines. Aglianico, often dubbed the “Barolo of the South,” offers powerful structure and rich, earthy flavours. For white wine lovers, Fiano di Avellino delights with its aromatic notes of honey, nuts, and tropical fruits, balanced by crisp acidity.

Abruzzo: The Allure of Montepulciano

In Abruzzo, discover Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, a wine that balances richness with approachability. With velvety tannins and robust flavours of plum and blackberry, it pairs beautifully with a wide range of Italian dishes.

Puglia: Primitivo and Negroamaro Bold Characters

Travel to the sunny vineyards of Puglia, where Primitivo and Negroamaro reign. Primitivo, closely related to Zinfandel, impresses with its bold flavours of ripe berries and spice. Negroamaro offers deep, dark fruit notes with a hint of earthiness, making it ideal for hearty pasta dishes and grilled meats.

Sicily: The Intensity of Nero d’Avola

Your journey culminates in Sicily, where the bold Nero d’Avola captures the sun-soaked intensity of the island. This wine is rich with dark fruit flavours and a hint of spice, reflecting the unique terroir of Sicily.
