Pinot Grigio is also known as Pinot Gris, and plantings can be found in the Lombardy region around Oltrepo Pavese and in Alto Adige, Italy's northernmost wine region. The grape is also prominent in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region. The grapes grow in small clusters (hence the pinecone shape). Wines made from the Pinot Grigio vary greatly and are dependent on the region and wine making style they are from. The Pinot Grigio style of Italy is a light-bodied, often lean wine that is light in color with sometimes spritzy flavors that can be crisp and acidic. Italian Pinot Grigio comes from a special Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) region called Delle Venezie DOC. This region includes provinces of Veneto, Friuli-Venezia-Giulia and Trentino.
