GEOGRAPHICAL INDICATIONS

PDO - PROTECTED DESIGNATION OF ORIGIN (D.O.P.)

The qualities and properties of PDO products are exclusively determined by the geographical environment. In order to receive the PDO status, the entire product must be manufactured and processed within the specific region.

PGI - PROTECTED GEOGRAPHICAL INDICATION (I.G.P.)

PGI products is a certain quality of feature that is attributable to its geographical origin. For PGI products, the European regulation stresses the production and/or processing phase that must be performed in a certain territory. PGI status is granted even when one phase only of the productive process is carried out in that region.

TSG- TRADITIONAL SPECIALITY GUARANTEED (STG)

This label identifies products with traditional features, either in the composition or means of productions, without a specific link to a particular geographical area. This particular certification is given to products with customised names and offering a set of features which distinguish them from other similar products.

DOC/DOCG- DENOMINATION OF CONTROLLED ORIGIN/DENOMINATION OF CONTROLLED AND GUARANTEED ORIGIN

These labels were created to legally define wine production areas and production formulas. DOC denotes a wine made within an officially delimited geographic zone, from an officially prescribed grape or blend of grapes. Even more rigidly controlled are those wines labelled DOCG. The previously mentioned IGP can also be used to signify that the wine is from a particular geographic area.
