Venezia Giulia IGT Wine
One of several IGT (Indicazione Geografica Tipica) titles used in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of northeast Italy. It covers the entire Friuli-Venezia Giulia region between the Italian Alps and the Adriatic Sea, catering to a wide range of wine styles made from both local and international grape varieties. The Venezia Giulia IGT title is dominated by fresh, light white wines made of Pinot Grigio, a style that is now popular around the world.
The title covers the region’s four eastern provinces: Gorizia, Pordenone, Trieste and Udine, collectively home to important DOC wines like Colli Orientali del Friuli and Friuli Grave, as well as DOCGs like Ramandolo and Rosazzo. There is a wide variety of terroir here, from the foot of the mountains to flat, sandy vineyards on the edge of the Lugana di Marano, which explains the wide variety of wines made here. However, most of the best vineyard sites in the region are used for the DOC- and DOCG-level wines. To the east of Venezia Giulia lies the Primorksi region of Slovenia, and to the west, the plains of lower Veneto (including the city of Venice).
The climate is shaped by the presence of both the sea and the mountains with the IGT having some of the northernmost vineyards of the country. The sea provides temperature moderation throughout the year, giving a sunny yet cool ripening period in late summer and autumn. The mountains in the north provide shelter from cold winds from Siberia whilst the plains of lower Veneto are less protected and therefor experience larger temperature variations.The region’s various rivers including the Torre and Tagliamento, have deposited nutrient-rich soils across the land, although these are far from homogenous.
