When I first got started, I heard a person call metabisulfate meh-tabby-sulfate, and so that's how I thought it was pronounced. A nice person at my LHBS corrected me one day.

Duh.

This is a great list. How about

Barbaresco
Nebbiolo
Negroamaro
Nero d'Avola
Primitivo

And Wade, if you read this, could I humbly suggest updating the OP with the other contributions that have been made?
Thanks!

I will give these a try:

Barbaresco: In Northern Italy it would be Bar ba RAY sko, in Southern Italy it would be Bar ba RAY show
Nebbiolo: Nayb bay YO lo
Negroamaro: Nay grow ah MAR oh
Nero D'Avola: Nay row DAH vo lah
Primitivo: Pre mah TI vo

I appears that I may have offended some with my attempt at humor. I apologize if I did, it wasn't my intention.

Thanks,
Tom
