It was granted its DOC status on March 3rd, 1966 and is made from the grapes Malvasia Bianca di Candia, Malvasia del Lazio, Trebbiano Toscano and as much as 10% other white grapes grown in the zone. The minimal alcohol level is 11%, or 11.5% to be designated superiore. Similarly, the spumante version of this DOC wine must also have a minimum of 11.5% alcohol. On the other hand, the novello may have as little as 10.5% alcohol but must be bottled before December 31st of the year in which it was harvested from the fields.
