The stories of the wine territories are largely pieces of the greatest history of Italy, a country in which the vine is a characterizing element from Alto Adige to Pantelleria, and which, not surprisingly, sees wine, vines and viticulture practices part of its national heritage, as sanctioned by the Unified Wine Law. It is not surprising, therefore, that the Register of Traditional Historical Landscapes of the Ministry of Agricultural Policies is increasingly enriched with wine territories. Like Valpolicella, as reported today by Ansa – Terra & Gusto, a territory of great wines, from Amarone to Valpolicella, from Ripasso to Recioto, characterized by the hills planted with vines supported by marogne, the terraces made of dry stone walls that paint the vineyard landscape of the territory. Just as it is dotted with vineyards, as well as olive groves, but also pastures and cultivated fields, the “Polycultural Hilly Landscape of Pienza and Montepulciano”, another new entry, and already in that Val d’Orcia Unesco Heritage.
Territories of excellence of wine, and of agriculture and agri-food chain that around wine, thanks to companies capable of enhancing the territories, express in fact that absolute value that is biodiversity. And which are added, in the Register of Historical Landscapes, to many others closely linked to wine: from the terraced vineyards of the Cembra Valley in Trentino to the terraced vineyards of the Rhaetian side of Valtellina, from the landscape of the Lemon groves, Vineyards and Woods of Amalfi, in Calabria, to the Madroliasai vineyards in Sardinia, from the Historical Rural Landscape of Lamole – Greve in Chianti, in the Chianti Classico, to the Dry Stone Landscape of the Island of Pantelleria, from the Soave vineyards to the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Hills Landscape of Prosecco Superiore, only to name a few.
