IGT

IGT Stands for Indicazione Geografica Tipica (Typical Geographic Indication)

The IGT category is the broadest category of Italian wines. All grapes within any IGT wine should come from the region stated on the label. There are no other requirements for this category in terms of style and it allows foreign grape varieties to be included. This does not mean that all IGT wines are lower quality, however. Often, the more relaxed rules around IGT can allow the master winemakers some freedom to be more creative in their production and some of these are absolutely incredible and as good, and often better than the higher DOCG classification wines.
