An IGT wine is defined by a particular geographical area. This area may be as large as an entire Italian region or as small as the hamlet of a comune. This category is not subject to DOC legislation These wines are the equivalent of French “Vin de Pays”. Prior to 1992, many excellent wines lacked a classification simply because they did not belong to a DOC area.
The IGT label must mention:
- “Vino ad Indicazione Geografica Tipica”
- The specified geographical area of production with sub-zones if indicated.
