IGT

Abbreviation for "Indicazione Geografica Tipica", the earlier valid in Italy valid name for one country wine, It was founded in 1992 by the Italian Minister of Agriculture Giovanni Goria (1943-1994) introduced later as the so-called "Goria Law" and won by those produced in this category Super-Tuscans great popularity. It was replaced by the valid from August 2009 EU wine market regulations by IGP (Indicazione Geografica Protetta). As a "traditional statement" IGT may still be used, which is often used.

A list of the IGT wines concerned is included in the Italian regions. The individual provisions are very similar. The approved varieties can be used more or less freely. Most of the wine types Bianco, Rosso and Rosato, as well as varietal wines produced (with the 85% share). Many of them are different for each IGT area often called Vendemmia tardiva ( late vintage ) Passito. Novello (for red wines), Vivace.
