    1) A I believe that Morellino is not a grape but an appellation (Morellino di Scansano)
    2) Brunello
    3) Amphora
    4) Amarone
    5) I think that Sherry is known as Jerez or Xeres in Spain. The word is an anglicisation of Jerez.

    Here we go:

    1) Pinot Nero is not an Italy-indigent grape.
    2) No clue. But Hannah seems to be right…if you provide a date, that sounds like you know it. 🙂
    3) Amphoras.
    4) Should be Amarone.
    5) Sherry maybe?

    Alright let’s give this a try:
    1. Pinot Nero because they others are synonyms for Sangiovese
    2. I’m not sure but I believe it’s Brunello. Vernaccia was the first DOC but I don’t think it was the very first DOCG wine
    3. Amphoras
    4. Amarone
    5. Sherry I think

      Thank you for subscribing to Vino in Love!
      Excellent answers. Another correct answer for question 2 would be Brunello di Montalcino but Vino Nobile works equally well.
