Best Italian Wines. Need Opinions Quick!

Becca | Jan 9, 2003 03:52 PM

I'm going to Rome and Florence next week and would welcome any suggestions on the best whites and reds available in these regions. As customs only allows one litre of alcohol duty free, I will bring back a bottle of white, and my companion, a bottle of red.

Could anyone give me a clue as to which two might be the best choice for our buck, er...euro? We're not wealthy, and probably won't spend more than $30 on a bottle. And I'm also looking for two which are widely available, and most likely found in any wine shop.

Thanks in advance!
