The DOCs Amarone della Valpolicella and Recioto della Valpolicella in Veneto in Italy have been promoted to DOCG status, according to Decanter.com. DOCG is the highest classification in the Italian wine laws. The DOCG label may be used from the 2008 harvest.
Growers welcome the upgrade and say that they hope it will improve the economy and the quality of the regions wine, and that it may reduce the amount of fake amarone that has circulated on international markets recently.
How that will happen is unclear. More www.decanter.com
