Alto Adige, Italy
Alto Adige is Italy’s most northerly wine region situated in the foothills of the Alps. It boasts its own DOC (regulated geographical region under Italian Wine Law) labelled Alto Adige DOC. The vineyards here are planted on terraces, most with high altitudes and a large diurnal range making this region prime for aromatic whites and light-bodied red wines. The most notable grape you’ll find here is Pinot Grigio. Traditionally, Pinot Grigio is made in a dry style with a light to medium body, high acid, and citrus flavors. Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, and Schiava are also grown with this region.
