Etichetta grammaticale



For products with a strong link to the defined geographical area where they are produced. 1


A European system for the protection of the geographical names of certain foodstuffs (which have a tangible link to the geographical area after which they are named) was established by Council Regulation 1151/2012. […] Regulation 1151/2012, and related Regulations 664/2012 and 668/2012, were given effect in Ireland by the European Union (Quality Schemes for Agricultural Products and Foodstuffs Regulations) 2015 [ S.I. No. 296 of 2015] . 2


PDO olive oils are produced, processed and prepared in a specific region, using the traditional regional production method. The combination of natural factors—including environmental characteristics, location, and human influence—makes the product unique. All production rules should be strictly adhered to, in order to ensure high quality and reproducibility of the characteristics of the product. In the case of Spanish Olive Oils, the term “D.O.,” standing for “Denominación de Origen” (Denomination of Origin) is also used, while for French Olive Oils the term “AOC,” standing for “Appellation d'origine contrôlée” (Controlled Destination of Origin) also exists. 3

Sinonimi e Antonimi





Mid-15c., from Latin protectus, past participle of protegere "to protect, cover in front," from pro "before" (see pro-) + tegere "to cover," from PIE root *(s)teg- "to cover." International economics sense from 1789. Related: Protected; protecting.
Late 14c., "action of pointing out," from Old French designacion or directly from Latin designationem (nominative designatio) "a marking out, specification," noun of action from past participle stem of designare "mark out, devise, choose, designate, appoint," from de- "out" (see de-) + signare "to mark," from signum "identifying mark, sign" (see sign (n.)). Meaning "descriptive name" is from 1824.
Old English of, unstressed form of æf (prep., adv.) "away, away from," from Proto-Germanic *af (source also of Old Norse af, Old Frisian af, of "of," Dutch af "off, down," German ab "off, from, down"), from PIE *apo- "off, away" (see apo-). Primary sense in Old English still was "away," but shifted in Middle English with use of the word to translate Latin de, ex, and especially Old French de, which had come to be the substitute for the genitive case. "Of shares with another word of the same length, as, the evil glory of being accessory to more crimes against grammar than any other." [Fowler]
c. 1400, "ancestry, race," from Old French origine "origin, race," and directly from Latin originem (nominative origo) "a rise, commencement, beginning, source; descent, lineage, birth," from stem of oriri "arise, rise, get up; appear above the horizon, become visible; be born, be descended, receive life;" figuratively "come forth, take origin, proceed, start" (of rivers, rumors, etc.), from PIE root *ergh- "to rise, mount". 5
