The Trentino DOC takes into effect the entire province of Trento, in the southern section of the Trentino-Alto Adige region of northern Italy. This is a very cool climate, so whites are prevalent, along with sparkling wines and well structured reds with good acidity.

There are many types of wine made here, whites such as Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Bianco and Nosiola are among the most common. For reds, varieties include Marzemino, Pinot Nero, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Trento DOC also refers to a category of classically made sparkling wines that are among the finest in all of Italy; the famed producer Ferrari has elevated this category into world class quality.

Minimum percentage for wines that state a variety on the label is 85% minimum. Aging is six months minimum before release, while that period is two years for a riserva. (Wine/Appellations)
