Answer: D) a varietal grown in Italy
Garganega is a white varietal grown in the Veneto region in the NE of Italy. Most people who have tasted don't know that it's made up of anywhere from 60% to 100% of Soave wines. It's a delicate white with aromas of lemons and almonds. Most recently, Italian winemakers have started blending this aromatic grape with Chardonnay to give it some depth. Garganega is 5th most widely planted grape in Italy.
