Lombardia

A large and geographically complex region, Lombardy is home to five DOCG and 20 DOC titles. The Oltrepo Pavese zone stands out among these as one of the larger, better-known regions, for its sparkling Oltrepo Pavese Metodo Classico DOCG. Franciacorta, the second of Lombardy's two sparkling DOCG wines, comes from highly esteemed vineyards between Brescia and Lake Iseo. The alpine Valtellina has two DOCG wines to its name: Valtellina Superiore and the distinctive, dried-grape amarone-style Sforzato di Valtellina, which are based on Chiavennasca, the Lombardian form of Piedmont's Nebbiolo.

Grape Varieties

Known particularly for its sparkling wines made in the Franciacorta and Oltrepò Pavese areas, Lombardy also produces still red, white and rosé wines made from a variety of local and international grapes including Nebbiolo wines in the Valtellina region, Trebbiano di Lugana white wines produced with the Chiaretto style rosé along the shores of Lake Garda, made from a blend of Barbera, Marzemino and Sangiovese. The Lugana white wines are made from the Trebbiano grape and are known for their fruitiness and medium body.
