The most important Italian grapes

 -

The Italian wine does not lose hope to keep climbing position within marketing sectors and worldwide popularity. Much has been achieved with the quality of crops marketed and currently a number of indigenous grapes are giving a lot to talk about.

Nebbiolo

It is one of the most prominent Italian grapes, in many parts of the world the harvest of this grape is attempted but none has found the secret of Piedmont, most likely by the terroir, as indicated by Berry Green. Alba and Nebbiolo Langhe Nebbiolo represent excellent choices for this grape.

Nerello Mascalese

This grape from Sicily is made at the foot of the highest active volcano in Europe and turns out to be as versatile as Pinot Noir. It is produced in limited quantities and in Sicily, this makes it become known in other parts of the world.

Nero D' Avola

One of the grapes that have become popular in Italy specifically in Sicily is the Nero D' Avola. It is dark and the time that is used to produce wines of entry, Pierpaolo Messina ( Producer ) ensures that this grape can age up to 10 years and this would give greater position of fine wine, but people quickly trade it, ignoring its potential.

Aglianico

This Italian grape grown in volcanic soils of Basilicata concentrate good potential to produce wines. Their plantations continue to grow and it is said that it is robust and tannic, but lacking the smooth fruity flavor. For now it is sold in small quantities and is considered by many astringent and heavy.

Fiano, Falanghina and Greco Bianco

These grapes for white wines stand out for their potential. Fiano is accessible and is the most popular Falanghina and Greco have some similarities based on their minerality and are expected to reach the level of a Sauvignon Blanc in the future.

Vermentino

Another white variety is ideal to successfully insert in the UK markets. It is less oily and citric than other Tuscan varieties. The harvested soil is not changed in the town it’s made and this gives uniformity. There are different shades of Vermentino.

Glera

Another primary grape in Italy is Glera, it is used to make the UK Prosecco. In  Uk Prosecco sold more than Champagne in 2012.

Trebbiano

Trebbiano positive features are its tropical fruity flavor, creaminess and minerality. It is the favorite of all winemakers but is an excellent alternative crop for premium wines. He won first place in the competition of the best wines of Italy Sommelier Luca Gardini.

Pinot Grigio

The wine made from this grape has been undervalued because of mass production, but it is looking to rebuild its image on the basis of quality that characterizes him. Dividends from the producers of this grape in Italy are greatly favored by UK demand but their status does not rise even being the more potential white variety for fine Italian wines.
