The typical geographical indication (Igt) is the first step to recognize the quality that a white wine Igt has to face. Indeed, in order to be distinguished from other wines, that are more simple, it has to respect some specific rules. 85% of its grapes has to come from the specific region of the Winery that produces it.
The same grapes, can not be originated from shrubs of different areas, as it could happen for other products, that are more generic. The must, that will become our white Igt, has to be produced by vine varieties coming from the same territory. In this case, it is mandatory to point out the reference denomination.
Essentially, between all the different white wines of the catalogue, Igt ones are typical products coming from the same territory, with a certification and with a specific quality. Currently, the European Community recognise more than 100 Igt wines .
Each one has to respect strict production requirements, one of them is to underline on their labels all those feature that aren’ t typical for a generic product. Specifically, an Igt white wine from Lombardia like “Verboso”, has to indicate its features, like colour, grapes, original vine variety, if the cultivation zone has important dimensions, or the production year.
There can be particular cases that define the typical geographical indication (Igt). In some areas that belong to the Italian territory, the so called “regions with special statute”, like in Valle D’Aosta for example, there’s the possibility to change the Igt denomination with the French one “Vin de Pays”.
Another case is that of the white wine Igt produced in the independent province of Bolzano, that use with pride the German denomination “Landwin”. To preserve the recognition, the producers has to respect the rules and to control the organoleptic quality of the products by communicating their status periodically.
