DOC area (also South Tyrol, ital. Alto Adige or dell'Alto Adige) for red wines, rosé wines and white wines in the Italian wine growing area South Tyrol. There are six sub-zones, which are regarded as separate DOC areas and under this name do not cover the entire product range, but only certain types of wine.
