But what do these acronyms mean? DOC stands for Denomination of Controlled Origin, and indicates that the wine was produced only with the grapes of a specific territory, and must respond to specific chemical and organoleptic characteristics, set within the regulations provided. After 10 years, a DOC can become DOCG, that is Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin, by passing a specific exam and meeting even more stringent requirements. IGT indicates instead Typical Geographical Indication, and it refers to a specific production area, which can be quite extensive, but delimited by regional borders. All acronyms state high quality guarantee and certification for the wines.
