Drink (Italian Wine)

Italian wine is wine produced in Italy, a country which is home to some of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world. Italian wine is exported largely around the world and has market share of over 10% in most Asian countries.

Wine is extremely popular in Italy. Italians lead the world in wine consumption by volume with 70 literes per capita consumption, compared to 25 litres in the US, 20 litres in Australia, 40 millilitres in China and 9 millilitres in India.

Italy’s classification system has four classes of wine, with two falling under the EU category Quality Wine Produced in a Specific Region (QWPSR) and two falling under the category of ‘table wine’. The four classes are: Table Wine:

  • Vino da Tavola (VDT) – Denotes simply that the wine is made in Italy. The label usually indicates a basic wine, made for local consumption.
  • Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT) – Denotes wine from a more specific region within Italy. This appellation was created in 1992 for wines that were considered to be of higher quality than simple table wines, but which did not conform to the strict wine laws for their region. Before the IGT was created, “Super Tuscan” wines such as Tignanello were labeled Vino da Tavola.

QWPSR:

  • Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC)
  • Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG)
