    Ok Let’s try this:
    1) B – Veneto
    2) B & E
    3) C – DOC system was established in 1963
    4) Zibibbo comes from the Egypt
    5) Sella & Mosca from Sardinia

    I’m not sure with question 2 but I don’t think that Passito di Brunello di Montalcino exists so that’s why I picked answers B and E..
    Looking forward to the solutions!
