DOC, DOCG and IGT certified wines

Vini bianchi e rossi

Controlled Designation of Origin Italian Quality Label

Since the PDO, PGI and TSG quality labels came into force in Europe in 1992, this quality certification system has been used exclusively for quality wines. The DOC label is attributed to wines produced in limited areas, which are usually small or medium-sized, with an indication of their geographical name. Usually, the name of the vine follows that of the DOC certification and production regulations are fairly rigid. DOC wines can only be marketed after in-depth chemical and sensorial analyses.

Controlled and Certified Designation of Origin Italian Quality Label

The DOCG label is given to DOC wines that have had the latter recognition for at least 5 years, are of “particular quality” and are well-known both in Italy and internationally. These wines are subject to stricter checks and must be sold in containers with a capacity of less than 5 litres. They must also bear a government label that guarantees their origin and quality and makes it possible to number the bottles.

Typical Geographical Indication Italian Quality Label

Since 1992 this label has also been reserved for wines characterised by a geographical indication, which may or may not be accompanied by other remarks (for example, the vine). They are normally produced in more extensive areas and production regulations are less restrictive than those above.
