The most well-known of the Malvasia varieties, Malvasia Istriana is most prominent in the Collio DOC and Isonzo DOC. Originally from Greece, the grape is no longer widely planted there, but cuttings brought to Italy have traditionally made good wines. Collio is located in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, in the northeast of Italy. Isonzo is located in the same place, and both use Malvasia Istriana as a varietal. The Colli Piacentini region of Emilia-Romagna (northwest Italy) uses the grape for sparkling wines.
