Pietro Ratti, President of the Barolo Consortium, in a Bloomberg article by John Mariani published today ( 5/17/2010 ):

“By this fall we shall have in place laws that will guarantee that ‘single vineyards’ listed on barolo labels truly come from those vineyards,” he said. “Until now a producer could put any name on the bottle he liked but the wine might have come from anywhere in the barolo region.”

      That's odd they didn't have that name trademarked or copyrighted.
