Igt Sebino Some wines are granted the status of Sebino Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT), the production area for which covers the entire Franciacorta area. The Regulations provide very wide margins of interpretation for these wines, meaning we can come across examples that are very different from one other, ranging from fresh and immediately pleasant wines to particularly serious wines with great personality.
There are four types of this wine: white, red, young and sweet, as well as in the types that bear the name of the grape variety: Sebino Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carmenere, Nebbiolo and Barbera.
