Subzone (also Valle Isarco) for white wines and red wines in the Alto Adige DOC area in the Italian wine-growing region of South Tyrol (in the dual region of Trentino-South Ty rol). The zone includes vineyards at up to 800 metres above sea level on both sides of the Eisack (Isarco) river northeast of Bolzano (Bozen) in Barbian (Barbiano), Bressanone (Brixen), Feldthurns (Velturno), Kastelruth (Castelrotto), Klausen (Chiusa), Lajen (Laion), Natz-Schabs (Naz-Sciaves), Ritten (Renon), Vahrn (Varna), Vilander (Villandro), Villnöss (Funes) and Völs am Schlern (Fiè allo Sciliar). If the grapes come from classified vineyards, Vigna plus the name of the vineyard may be indicated.
The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.Andreas Essl
