Pecorino Sardo

This List of DOP Italian cheeses includes all the Italian cheeses which have Denominazione di Origine Protetta ("Protected Designation of Origin"), or DOP, status under European Union regulations.

Prior to 1996 when the PDO system came into operation, many Italian cheeses were regulated under a Denominazione di Origine (DO) system, which arose out of the 1951 Stresa Conference and was established under the Italian law 125/54. These appellations of origin were recognized in a number of European countries with which Italy had bilateral agreements. The international framework of recognition was further developed, and extended from cheese to include other agricultural products, by the Lisbon Convention of 1958, and the modifications made to it at Stockholm in 1967, and by the TRIPS accord of 1994.

All of the existing "DO" cheeses were registered by the EU as "DOP" cheeses during the course of 1996.

List[edit]

The following table indicates for each cheese the year in which it acquired DO status (where applicable), the year of DOP registration and the approximate area within which the regulations permit it to be produced.
