Cap X - WINE
2.1. Pedoclimate vs. Variety
Recent European rules place these products in the great agri-food sector with protected typicity, and this seems to confirm how much the products falling into this category have their foundation in geographical and historical typicity, as well as a varietal basis, as shown in table 10.3 PGIs divided by variety.
The most popular ones border on varieties admitted on the labelling of table wines with varietal designations; or with DOs that are successful on world markets with varietal bases such as Pinot Gris (gr.), Lambrusco (bl.), Trebbiano (wh.) and Sangiovese (bl.).
The commercial choice to valorise some GIs rather than others that coincide in the same areas and vineyards, explains the fluctuating data, an example of this is the Delle Venezie GI that has replaced the Marca Trevigiana GI in bottling preferences.
