Classifications:  VDT Vino da Tavola (European “Table Wine”) Simple table wines that carry neither a varietal name  nor a vintage date.  About 40% of the total wine production in Italy. Note:  In the US, “Table Wine” includes ALL still wine (independent of appellation  or quality) with an alcohol content under 14% by volume!
Background image of page 12
Classifications:  IGT This appellation, instituted in 1992, is equivalent to the  French  Vin de Pays  or German  Landwein The wine's label must declare its specific region and  may cite varietal name and vintage.
