Product technology: Technological content is rather basic in the production, harvesting and fermenting of grapes. However, more refined technology is employed in the production of quality wines, which are regulated by appellation authorities. This is because there are strict rules concerning geographical production areas, production conditions, maximum grape yields, as well as physical, chemical and sensory properties of the finished product.
Function: Wine is a drink to accompany meals or to be enjoyed during any social occasion. Sparkling wines tend to serve a more social function, as they are usually consumed during celebrations and special events or, to a lesser extent, as an aperitif to accompany happy hour meals in Italian bars.
Client categories: wholesalers, wine shops and other small retailers, supermarkets, bars and restaurants, Internet-based intermediaries. End customers are wine consumers - in other words, the vast majority of the Italian population.

- IGT wines. This designation, Identificazione Geografica Tipica (literally, Characteristic Geographical Identification) is reserved for wines produced in a specific geographical area that, for any of a number of reasons, do not meet the requirements to be considered DOC or DOCG wines.
