Wine Law

The study of the wine chain’s regulation offers a representative and useful case study in order to deepen our understanding of many of the national, supranational and international dynamics characterizing most of the agro-food chains. The problems dealt with cover from the regulation of the geographical indications to the control of information, labeling and advertising, from products’ safety to the increasing use of certifications. So far attention has been devoted to two specific areas: on one hand, the drafting of legal guidelines for the management of the critical points in wine production (in collaboration with Unione Italiana Vini), part of a wider project aimed at developing legal risk management strategies for the wine industry; on the other, the regulation of quality wines, which has been recently reformed and has entered into force August 1, 2009.
