Prosecco's Prestige: Decoding DOC and DOCG Labels

In the effervescent realm of Prosecco, the nuances of DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) and DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) play a pivotal role in defining the quality and character of these beloved sparkling wines. At Wine Affairs, a distinguished wine distributor in Manhattan's Upper West Side, we are passionate about unravelling these classifications for our clients, spotlighting exceptional Proseccos such as Saomi DOC and Brunei Brut DOCG.

Decoding DOC and DOCG in Prosecco:

The DOC label ensures that a Prosecco, like the Prosecco La Tordera - Saomi - DOC Treviso, adheres to specific production standards in designated regions of Italy. Saomi embodies the DOC spirit with its vibrant, fruity bouquet and balanced composition – a Brut sparkling wine with an alcohol content of 11.5%, maintaining harmonized levels of sulphur dioxide and sugar. It's an excellent choice for beginning a meal or crafting delightful aperitifs, thanks to its light, invigorating effervescence and pear and peach notes.

In contrast, the DOCG designation is reserved for wines meeting even more stringent criteria, reflecting the pinnacle of Italian wine quality. The Brunei Brut DOCG Prosecco stands as a testament to this superior standard. With a similar alcohol content but a slightly lower sulphur dioxide level than the DOC variant, it offers a refined and distinguished drinking experience, perfect for those seeking sophistication in their Prosecco.

At Wine Affairs, our mission extends beyond offering a diverse selection of Proseccos. We seek to build partnerships with wine distributors who share our enthusiasm for high-quality Italian wines. Together, we can introduce these exquisite sparkling treasures to a broader audience. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for passionate wine enthusiasts and skilled salespeople to join our team, contributing to our journey in sharing the rich stories behind each bottle.
