Oltrepo Pavese DOC
Located in the southwestern reaches of the Lombardy region, Oltrepo Pavese is home to many different wine types, most notably classically made sparkling wine from Pinot Noir and/or Chardonnay. There are also still, dry version of these two varieties, as well as Riesling Renano, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon (Blanc) and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The sparkling wines, however, are the most well known wines that carry the Oltrepo Pavese designation. These must be aged for a minimum of 18 months and cannot be released until 24 months after the vintage. Medium-bodied with good acidity and a pleasant fruitiness, these are excellent values for sparkling wine. (Wine/Appellations)
