Liguria is a wine region located on the Mediterranean coast of Italy that spreads between the French border to Tuscany, sometimes referred to as the Italian Riviera. Though Liguria has been most famous for its whites, there are notable red wines produced here.
Rossese di Dolceaqua features the local Rossese grape, which is a light-bodied, fruity and spicy red. Some DOCs cover both whites and reds, such as Colline di Levanto, Colli di Lune, Albenga, Finale and Riviera dei Fiori. As in neighboring Tuscany, Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo typically make up the rosso blends, as does Granaccia which is the local Grenache.
