    Q1: in Italian it means Gambero Rosso, which is the name of one of the most important Italian wine publications
    Q2: A, it is an AOC from the Rhone region
    Q3: Barolo
    Q4: B, Ferrari doesn’t belong to the list as the other three wineries producing Amarone wines, and Ferrari makes only sparkling wines
    Q5: Sangiovese (according to your blog post)

    I guess it was the first of your quizzes which I was able to attempt without the help of Google : )
