Lison Classico wines are made under the production conditions of the Lison DOC, specifically from grapes grown within the title's delimited classico zone. This zone is the area which has been longest used for the production of Lison wines
While the Lison catchment area spills over the regional border from Veneto into Friuli (it is the only DOCG to do this), the Lison Classico zone is located entirely within Veneto. It is specified as covering the neighborhoods of Lison, Pradipozzo and Summaga in the Portogruaro commune, Belfiore, Blessaglia and Salvaro in the Pramaggiore commune and Carline and Loncon in the Annone Veneto commune. This very flat, low-lying area (the altitude varies only 0–30ft/0–9m) spans less than 10 miles (16km) from east to west and occupies the very western edge of the wider Lison area.
All Lison and Lison Classico wines are white and made from Tai (formerly known as Tocai) grapes. Between 1985 and 2010 they were sold under the Lison-Pramaggiore DOC, but have now been granted independence and a promotion to full DOCG status.
