DOCG

DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita = controlled and guaranteed designation of origin) is the highest rating level for Italy's wines and is therefore over the quality level DOC. DOCG wines have to meet strict requirements in terms of grape varieties, growing area, yield, harvest and aging. For example, they may not be stored in tanks - not even temporarily.

In 2009, the EU standardized the national and regional evaluation systems as part of its wine market regulation. In Italy, the DOC and DOCG wines fell into the EU level DOP. However, winegrowers are allowed to indicate the traditional quality level on the label in addition to the EU quality level.
