Northern Italy, known for its mountainous terrain and stylish culture, is home to some of the most prestigious and most popular wines in the world.
From the rolling hills of Piedmont, which grows Nebbiolo that produce the big, powerful yet wonderfully elegant wines of Barolo and Barbaresco to the coastal areas of Veneto, home to the ever-popular Prosecco, made from the Glera grape. Tradition is king in this area, old school methods such as Ripasso, where Corvina grapes are first dried to create the intense Amarone, are still utilised.
The neighbouring countries have also played a big role in shaping this area, to the Far North there is a strong Germanic influence, with wines that are a light and fresh take on Pinot Noir and Riesling and the border towns to the North East produce the wines of Slovenian and Hungarian descent such Friulano, which used to be known as Tokaji Friulano until 2007.
