Veneto-Friuli

Veneto-Friuli

Friuli and Veneto in the northeastern Italy is one of the most prestigious wine regions in Italy and the Veneto itself, is Italy's largest producing wine region. About half of the area is hilly with 20-25% covered by mountains. The climate sets high standards for the wine production since the temperature varies a lot between the cold winters and the hot summers. Both the white and the red wines are of very high quality with local character and made from local grape varieties. In Friuli it is mainly Tokai Friulano which is used for the white wines. Today the grape variety is just called "Friulano" after that Hungary has obtained the right to protect the "Tokai" name for just the Hungarian dessert wine. Verduzzo, Ribolla Gialla and Malvasia are other varieties used for the white wines from Friuli. In Veneto, the Garganega grapes are grown for the Soave wines and also the Trebbiano di Soave which are used for, among others, the Lugana wines. For the red wines, mainly the Pignolo and Refosco varieties are used in Friuli. In Veneto, it might be the prestigious Amarone wines produced from Corvina and Rondinella grapes which are the best known. But there is also the Bardolino and several different Valpolicella wines which are also produced here.
