Italian wine regions

The 36 DOCG wines are located in 13 different regions but most of them are concentrated in Piedmont and Tuscany. Among these are appellations: Barolo, Barbaresco, and Brunello di Montalcino (colloquially known as the "Killer B's").
The regions are from Northwest to Southeast: Aosta Valley (Valle D'Aosta), Piedmont (Piemonte), Liguria, Lombardy (Lombardia), Trentino-AltoAdige/Südtirol, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Veneto, Emilia-Romagna, Tuscany (Toscana), Marche (Le Marche), Umbria, Lazio, Abruzzo, Molise, Campania, Basilicata, Apulia (Puglia), Calabria, Sicily (Sicilia), Sardinia (Sardegna)
