IGT area (German: Weinberg Dolomiten) for white, red and rosé wines (Landweine) in the two Italian regions of Trentino-Alto Adige and Veneto. It covers 700 hectares of vineyards in the province of Bolzano (Bozen) in South Tyrol and in the province of Trento (Trient) in Trentino, as well as in the province of Belluno (Veneto). Grape varieties authorised in the regions may be used. Varietal wines must contain at least 85% of the variety in question, up to 15% may be other varieties. Dual varietal wines must be blended from 50 to 85% of the main grape variety and 15 to 50% of other grape varieties. For the wines, a minimum alcohol content is prescribed for each wine type, but no ageing periods.
The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.Andreas Essl
