I.G.T – Typical Regional Wine

 

The I.G.T. designation refers to quality table wines produced in specified areas and with fine grape varieties. These wines must follow regulations that are less restrictive compared with those required for DOC and DOCG wines.

In some cases the choice to position a wine among IGT wines is due to commercial reasons as well as to the impossibility of positioning the wine among DOC or DOCG wines.

Failure to comply with the above-mentioned requirements prevents from marketing wine with the IGT designation.
