And now let’s look at the situation in Lombardy regarding the precious Three Glasses award in 2017.
Lombardy is the most populous region and one of the largest in Italy; it is located in Northern Italy and is bordered by Piedmont, Emilia-Romagna, Veneto and the Swiss Ticino region to the north. Lombardy is one of the five landlocked Italian regions, but its stunning lakes include Garda, Como, Maggiore and Iseo, which dominate the northern part of the region.
Lombardy is the industrial engine of Italy, but it also attracts millions of tourists, with many wine tourists among them.
This huge and geographically complex region offers a wide range of wine styles and has 5 DOCG, 22 DOC and 15 IGT titles. The most famous Lombardy wine styles are the red Valtellina, the sparkling Franciacorta and the Oltrepo Pavese wines and sparkling wines.
Lombardy is one of the most interesting and rich wine regions in Italy, which is apparent from its recent Tre Bicchieri award recognitions.
This is a historical vintage, according to the Italian food and wine magazine Gambero Rosso; Lombardy with its 23 Tre Bicchieri awards is one of the powerhouses of Italian wine making. Its wine is well renowned in Italy, which will hopefully lead to growing international success and increased exports.
Among the 23 Tre Bicchieri awards are 10 Franciacorta, 5 Valtellina and 4 Oltrepo wines and much more. Please visit www.gamberorosso.it for details and check the full list of the Lombardy winners below.
