This section is for all Italian wines with denomination of origin (Docg, Dop-Doc, Igp-Igt). The designations of origin are a mark of legal protection of the denomination which is attributed by the European Union to wines whose peculiar quality characteristics depend essentially or exclusively on the territory in which they were produced. The geographical environment includes both natural factors (climate, environmental characteristics), and human factors (production techniques handed down over time, craftsmanship, savoir-faire) which, combined together, allow to obtain an inimitable product outside a specific production area.
Riccardo Amedoro, student enrolled in the degree course in Viticulture and Oenology at the University of Florence, collaborated in its realization.
