ddddd <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abruzzo_(wine)">Abruzzo</a> is located on the east side of Italy along the Adriatic coast. It is mostly red wines with the renowned Montepulciano d'Abruzzo that are grown here. The very first person who spoke about red wine from Abruzzo was probably the Greek historian Polibio, who after Hannibal's victory at Cannae (216 B.C.) praised the wines of Abruzzo since they had "healed the wounded and put power in men." With the Adriatic Sea in the east and the Apennin mountain ranges in the west, <a href="https://ivinio.com/en/en-abruzzo/">Abruzzo</a> can be divided into two areas; the interior and mountain dressed part with continental climate, which represents 65% of the surface. Then the coastal strip with its milder climate. The wine production has been rationalized the past half century and the more or less inaccessible mountain areas have been abandoned in favor of areas along the coast. Furthermore, the focus has been given to the Montepulciano grapes which today represent 70% of all the plantings and are used to the already mentioned Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, but also to the Cerasuola wines. Among the diversity of wine from Abruzzo, there is also white wines are produced here, the most famous is the Trebbiano d'Abbruzo made from Trebbiano and Bombino grapes.
ddddd <a href="https://ivinio.com/en/product-category/italian-wines/en-alto-adige/">Alto-Adige</a> is the second smallest wine region in Italy, just bigger than the Aosta Valley and is located in the northeastern part, just south of the Austrian border. Wine from <a href="https://www.altoadigewines.com/en/home/1-0.html">Alto-Adige</a> is often divided into 2 different areas. The northern South Tyrol, which was part of Austria until the end of the First World War, but was then linked to Italy in 1919. The Trentino is the southern part of the wine region. Wine from Alto-Adige has been grown in the region since ancient times and was introduced by the Illyrians, a population who lived between the Adriatic coast and the Danube. The Romans then, as in many other places, developed the wine production. In Trentino's southern vineyard area, the local Schiava wine is grown and in northern South Tyrol, it is mainly the Lagrein grape that is cultivated. Chardonnay is the very common white grape variety, used to produce sparkling wine according to the classic method.
ddddd Basilicata may not be the most famous Italian wine region, despite the fact that wine has cultivated here since the ancient Greek times. Basilicata is located between 2 other and probably more famous wine region which are Puglia to the east and Campania in the West. The presence of the Greeks has still today left their traces in Basilicata since they contributed to the introduction of various grapes varieties and they also introduced the so called "Alberello"-plantations which are common in Sicily.

ddddd Wine from <a href="https://ivinio.com/en/en-ligurie">Liguria</a> comes from the part of Italy which is also known as representing the Italian Riviera. The region stretches from the French border down to Tuscany and is improperly and above all anchored with sun, swimming and holiday. Few know about the excellent and exclusive wines from Liguria. The wine area only covers 5,000 hectares in size and the complex geographical configuration with the Alps that rise straight up from the sea makes the conditions for viticulture extremely difficult. The most widely grown red grape varieties are Rossese and Ormeasco. Pigato and Vermentino are the most common white grape varieties. The exclusive and perhaps most famous Schiacchetrà from <a href="https://www.cinqueterre.eu.com/en/">Cinque Terre</a> are manufactured by Bosco and Albarola.

They decided to strengthen the trade through local production in <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piedmont">Piedmont</a>.

ddddd <a href="https://ivinio.com/en/en-tuscany/">Wine from Tuscany</a> is today among the world 's most famous and appreciated wines. Wine production has always been part of the local culture. Actually, it all started 700 years BC when the Etruscans cultivated wine in the hills of Tuscany . The wine production has ever since steadily evolved in <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuscany">Tuscany</a> and Tuscan wines have been served in the royal houses throughout Europe for several hundered years . Best known is certainly the typical straw bottle of Chianti which is sold worldwide. Today, wine from Tuscany is much more than the straw bottle. Innovative usage of the local Sangiovese grape underlies successes like Brunello di Montalcino and Montepulciano. The Chianti wines, which are also produced mostly out of Sangiovese grapes are offered in both Chianti and Chianti Classico. The Chianti Classico is produced in the vineyards between Florence and Sienna, where the 3 towns Greve, Radda and Castellina create a triangle. Most of the wines here belong to the consortium Classico and bear the "Gallo Nero" (black rooster) that ensures that the bottle is a true Chianti Classico. There are two types of Chianti Classico, one "standard" and one "Riserva." The Riserva is made from the best grapes and aged for at least 27 months before the sale. Other wines which are also produced out of Sangiovese are Tignanello and Sassicaia, the demand and price are equivalent to those of Brunello di Montepulciano. Even Montepulciano, Montalcino, Bolgheri, Maremma Carignano are produced from Sangiovese grapes. After almost solely having grown Sangiovese grapes, new varieties such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon were introduced in Tuscany in the 70's. These grape varieties are used to produce the so-called "Super Tuscans". Sassicaia finding success around the world is produced out of just Cabernet Sauvignon and has now its own DOC called Bolgheri. Today Sangiovese is blended with Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah and Pinot Noir, which gives amazing results. The "Super Tuscan" wines are today among the most exclusive and most coveted Italian wines and the price is unfortunately joining the demand upward.
ddddd Umbria is located east of Tuscany. Yet it has towards the general public a less-known reputation than the world-famous neighbor to the west. Umbria is a green inland region without coastlines, consisting of hill terrain from north to south, in other words an excellent landscape for viticulture. Besides the wines from Umbria, the agriculture is dominated by the cultivation of olives. Historically, wines from Umbria have existed since the time of the Etruscans 3,000 years ago, and wine from Umbria has been praised in literature ever since Pliny the Elder and Martial 2,000 years ago. However, at that time, the viticulture was, just like in many other regions, mainly a question of volume. It was only in the 60’s, when Umbria obtained its first appellation DOC Torgiano in 1968 that things started to change. In 1990 Umbria obtained its first DOCG wine which was the Torgiano Rosso Riserva. Today, equal parts of red and white grapes are grown in Umbria. Among the white grape varieties, there is mainly the Grechetto which grows throughout the region and is used both in varietal wines and mixed, mainly with Chardonnay. Among the red varieties, there is the Sagrantino which is the most important variety. Sagrantino is grown mainly around Montefalco, by the way the grape’s region of origin. Other white grape varieties grown are Malvasia Bianca, Trebbiano Toscano, Verdello, Canaiolo Bianco and Procanico, while among the red varieties grown are mainly Sangiovese, Ciliegiolo, Canaiolo Nero, Montepulciano, Barbera and especially Gamay which was introduced around the Lake Trasimeno about 100 years ago.

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.
