Many of the famous wine regions of Italy are in the North of the country, such as Valpolicella, Soave, Prosecco and Barolo. The baking heat that hits the South of Italy is a world away from the mountains of the North. Also, it's been hit hard by the economic winds in the last 20 years. Unemployment is hurting the locals badly.
So, plenty of sun, cool indigenous grape varieties, tonnes of history, expertise, closeness to the sea, interesting soils on great slopes and lots of people willing to work hard in the vineyards to make great wine? That's a recipe for incredible wines and great value for money.
