Temperate Old and New World climates in regions such as Burgundy, France; Willamette Valley, Oregon; Anderson Valley and Russian River Valley, California; and Etna and Piedmont, Italy encourage further ripening of grapes. Cooler climates rely on longer maceration and light barrel aging; warmer climates use cement or stainless steel. The wines resemble 1% milk and have juicy ripe fruit and vibrant acidity. Varietals include Pinot Noir, Nerello Mascalese, and Barbera. Pair these wines with grilled seafood, salty capers, and olives.
