Denominazione di origine controllata (DOC)

The Denominazione di origine controllata classification was created to be roughly equivalent to the French Appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC). It requires that a wine satisfy a defined quality standard, and be produced within the specified region. Unlike IGT, the DOC definitions will usually specify additional more stringent rules regarding permitted grape varieties, harvest yields, minimum ageing including use of barrels, minimum alcohol content, and other factors. Wines labelled DOC or DOCG must be sold in bottles holding no more than 5 litres (170 US fl oz). Historically the DOC status has been used to classify other food products such as cheeses, olive oil and vinegar, but the Denominazione di origine protetta (DOP) is now used instead.

Since the 2008 EU reforms, both the DOC and DOCG wine classifications are protected in the EU as Protected Designations of Origin (PDO), which in Italy generally is indicated in Italian: “Denominazione d’Origine Protetta” (DOP). The may however still be referred to as DOC/DOCG or (in Bolzano, where German is an official language) in German: Kontrollierte Ursprungsbezeichnung’.

This is a list of the 329 Italian DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) wines ordered by region. The wine making regions of Italy are equivalent to its twenty administrative regions. Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol (or just Trentino-Alto Adige), however, is subdivided into its two constituent parts.
