3798 words - 16 pages

Introduction
In ancient times, wine was continuously referred to and recognized throughout prehistoric civilizations and cultures such as: the Mesopotamian, Minoan, Greek, and Etruscan cultures (The Rich History of Italian Wine, 2012).   During the evolution of wine (between 4000 and 3000 B.C.), Romans contributed greatly to the art of viniculture in Italy. Since ancient times, wine has been a significant aspect of Italian culture and was consumed regularly (The Rich History of Italian Wine, 2012). Today, Italy is portrayed through old world and new world wine production and styles, as the region of Italy has continuously been recognized internationally as a major wine-production area. ...view middle of the document...

Veneto is roughly sectioned into three geographical areas based on topography and geology; these geographical areas include the northwest, northeast and central areas (Wine Searcher, 2012). Diverse styles of wine are produced throughout the region of Veneto, from the cooler, alpine-influenced climate wines in the northwest which produce fresh, crisp whites, dry whites and light reds, to the northeast area known for sparkling Prosecco, foaming spumante and semi-sparkling frizzante wines (Wine Searcher, 2012). The Veneto region is recognized as the first region in Italy to introduce a school for the art of vine growing and oenology (Wine Country, 2012). In addition, the Veneto region is the first region to constitute the strada Del vino or “wine road” which provided tourists and local citizens with information on the vines and wines of the Veneto region (Wine Country, 2012). For the purpose of this report, the white wine selected to represent the Veneto region include: Pinot Grigio delle Venezie Cesari Veneto 2010, Chardonnay "Venezie" Cesari Veneto 2010, Bianco delle Venezie Principe Veneto 2010, Garanega Soave "Montesei" Le Battistelle Veneto 2007, Bertani Pinot Grigio Velante Veneto 2010, Pra Soave Classico Veneto 2011 and Pinot Grigio Masi Masianco Veneto 2010. The red wine selected to represent the Veneto region include: Valpolicella Csari "Essere" Veona Veneto Italy 2010, Ripasso Valpolicella Delibori Veneto 2008, Amarone della Valpolicella Cantine Delibori Veneto 2007, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico "Zardini" Veneto Italy 2007 and Colli Euganei Rosso "Calaone" Ca'Orologio Veneto Italy 2006.
Piedmont
The English translation of Piedmont means “at the foot of the mountain” explaining the location of the Piedmont region near The Alps Mountain range in northwestern Italy (Wine Country, 2012). The region of Piedmont has over forty DOC and four DOCG areas, which produce many of the highly known and recognized wine varietals of Piedmont; such as: Barbera, Barolo, Barbaresco, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo, Grignolino etc (Wine Country, 2012). Wine production in Piedmont is mostly supported by local family estates, as a majority of wine from this region are produced from small parcels of land primarily owned by local citizens (Wine Country, 2012). The main grape variety grown within the region of Piedmont is the Nebbiolo grape, derived from the word nebbia meaning “fog” which describes the heavy morning fog and humidity that enhance the grape production within this area (Wine Country, 2012). This grape is the foundation to many of the wines found in the Piedmont region such as the Barolo, Barbaresco, Gattinara etc (Piedmont Wines, 2009). The terroir of Piedmont is said to be similar to that of Burgundy, France as Piedmont generates rich red wines that are complex, silky and aromatic (Piedmont Wines, 2009). For the purpose of this report, the white wine selected to represent the Piedmont region include: Gavi di Gavi Bersano Piedmont Italy 2010,...
