Italy-Bound -- In Search of Salumi, Cheese, Wine, Liqueur

guanubian | Sep 13, 201403:16 PM     20

My wife and I are spending our honeymoon in Rome, Venice and Sorrento during the second half of the month.

Our priority, of course, is food and drink. We are especially interested in recommendations for enjoying the best of the following in the areas we will visit:

1) Salumi - "cold cuts" of cured pork and other meats made by small, traditional shops / producers
2) Cheese - Italian varieties made by small, traditional shops / producers
3) Wine - We love it all, but especially Amarone, ripassos, reciotos, and related dinner and dessert wines
4) Liqueurs - Amaro, grappa, things like Strega and mistra anise, etc.

Thank you for any help you can provide!
