While Italian reds still attract most of the attention for the country's wines, there are today, dozens of outstanding whites.
This webinar will cover some of these classic and iconic white wines, ranging from north (Alto Adige and Friuli) to south (Campania and Sicily).
Some of the finest examples of appellations such as Soave as well as wines made from Verdicchio and Vermentino, and white blends from Friuli will be included along with several others, including rarities made from distinctive grapes such as Timorasso and Nosiola.
We will also look into reasons as to why Italian whites have improved so much, as well as the new innovations.

Italian red wines may get all the attention, but insiders know that Italian whites are as varied and interesting as the country’s reds. Italy’s multitude of mountains and hills ensures wines with bright acidity—the hallmark of Italian whites. Acidity is what makes a wine food friendly, and Italian white wines do not disappoint. From appetizers through dessert, there is a perfect Italian white for your table.
