Italy has adopted a rigorous controlled appellation system that has strict controls with regulations governing vineyard quality, yields per acre, and aging practices just to name a few. There is over three hundred DOC (Denominazioni di Origine Controllata) and DOCG (Denominazioni di Origine Controllata e Garantita) wines today. There are over five hundred classifications IGT (Indicazioni Geografica Tipica) wines are factored in too. Depending on the region of Italy, you’ll have a better idea of what types of wine are produced.
In the North, the Italian Alps lay against long expanses of the Po River plains. Tiny pockets and microclimates along the mountains link to their very own special wine. It always seems to be a fight between nature and wine, but wine continues to win as it has an extraordinary ability to age.
Central Italy delivers many more exciting wines such as Sagrantino from the Umbrian town of Montefalco, dense and dark Montepulciano from Abruzzo, and white Verdicchio from Le Marche.
Southern Italy, specifically Sicily has native grapes like Nero d’Avola (red) and Grillo (white). Grillo is used to produce fortified wine, Marsala. Sicily has a relaxed regulation with an increased experimentation which make the “new world” wine region, while perfectly locked within the confines of an “old world” wine reality.
