DOC stands for Denominazione di Origine Controllata or designation of controlled origin in English. DOC is the second highest quality level behind DOCG. In order for an Italian wine to achieve this classification, there are very strict rules which need to be followed regarding quality and authenticity.

There are 329 different DOC wines in Italy, each with a set of laws which govern the permitted grape varieties, maximum harvest yields, and ageing requirements. These rules cover many types of Italian wine, from Prosecco to Vin Santo dessert wines, and include both red and white Italian grape varieties.
