DOCG wines, Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin, follow a standard of identity and are characterized by coming from a specific area, often subdivided into townships or portions of these, farms, small farms or even vineyards. The area is usually quite restricted and mostly the source for production of the wine at hand. A DOCG can be part of a DOC. For example it can be a portion of a DOC land or just the indication of a designation such as Superiore. DOCG standard of identity follow the same principles and rules as the DOC, except that the values to be respected are tighter. The law says that a DOCG wine can be such only after having been DOC for at least five years. Moreover DOCG wines must be tested twice, the second time during bottling. Lastly, on the label the year must be reported (not for sparkling wines).
