Fine wine from Trentino Italy
The northern Italian area of Trentino is often regarded as a top winemaking location. Trentodoc, a sparkling wine prepared in the traditional technique, and Pinot Nero, a red wine made from the Pinot Nero grape, are two of Trentino's most well-known wines.
The Trentodoc sparkling wine is prepared in the classic style, with a delicate perlage and a fragrance of white flowers and fruit; it is named for the area in which it is produced, Trentino. This wine is a great choice to serve with seafood dishes.

Trentino also produces a number of other wines, including the red Lagrein, the white Nosiola, and the sweet Vino Santo Trentino.
