An abbreviation for Italian wines which refers to "Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita" or "Controlled Denomination of Origin Guaranteed". This designation shown as D.O.C.G. on a wine label refers to a top ranking in the Italian wine rating system. Not only does this wine meet the D.O.C. requirements which are less strict, but it is also subject to more stringent controls and compliance for cultivation and processing procedures in order to be "Guaranteed." Wines receiving the D.O.C.G. designation have been certified for region, the harvest year of the grapes, and have passed additional tests undertaken during ageing and bottling.
