Although Trentino regional white wines are sometimes considered light by
international standards, the best of them have an unexpected propensity
to age. But the emphasis remains on the popular Pinot Grigio. Despite the
traditional flow north to German-speaking countries, the white wines of
Trentino have been making steady progress in Italy and, recently, in foreign
markets, such as the United States and United Kingdom.
