Q: By the way, what does the DOCG seal on the neck of this bottle mean?
A: The DOCG designation (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) denotes the highest quality standard as prescribed by Italian wine law. DOC and DOCG both have requirements relative to areas of production, permitted grape varieties, maximum yield, minimum alcohol %, pruning, trellising, winemaking, and aging. For DOCG status, the wine must be bottled in the area of production, permitted yields are lower, and DOCG wines are subject to in-depth analysis and tasting by the Ministry of Agriculture to check for typicity (in other words, is the wine’s quality typical for its type, the region, and vintage).
