Turns out Italians have been making wine for even longer than we thought. A research team from the University of South Florida ran tests on an ancient jar found in a cave in Sicily, and found it contained traces of 6,000 year-old vino. We don't know, however, if it was red or white.
The previous oldest Italian wine residue was found in a Nuragic winepress near Cagliari in the early 1990s. That wine was a measly 3,000 years-old.
