The Italian wine classification system is made up of 4 different categories: VDT - IGT - DOC - DOCG. 
Top wines are recognized under the brands DOC and DOCG.
In all of Italy there are 300 wines that are labeled with brand DOC and only 73 are DOCG:

DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata),  wines are produced in specific well-defined regions, according to specific rules designed to preserve the traditional wine-making practices of the individual regions. The rules governing quality and authenticity are very strict, but they are a little more generous then those for DOCG status. The geographic zone of the production might be a little bigger and the rules about what kind of grapes might be a little more relaxed.

DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita)
, Seeing this on the label of your wine bottle means that the wine producers followed the strictest regulations possible to make that wine. The rules set for DOCG wines also require in-depth chemical analysis. Wines are sent to laboratories recognised by the government for chemical testing to make sure their compositions meet the standards specified in the DOCG regulations. In addition, committees of expert tasters sample each producer’s wines – these have full authority to reject wines that fail to meet the specific sensory standards. Once a producer’s wine has met the standards of the chemical and sensory tests, they would be issued small pink numbered seals that fit over corks in the bottles of the DOCG wines. 
Three of these 73 wines are produced from grapes grown in a small area near Avellino called IRPINIA:

Taurasi is made in the elevated hill area of Avellino in eastern Campania along the Calore River. Taurasi is also the name of a community in the center of this production area.  
Taurasi first gained its DOC status in 1970 and was promoted to DOCG in 1993. Under these regulations,       the wines must comprise at least 85% Aglianico grapes from the province of Avellino. The remaining 15%       can be made up with other permitted local red grapes, usually Piedirosso . The majority, however, tend to be   pure Aglianico. The wines must be aged for three years before release with a minimum of one year in barrel.   Riservas require a further one year with at least 18 months in oak.

This white has carried the DOCG status since 2003, and its immense purity of fruit, elegance and refinement   distinguishes it among its peers. The wines are characterized by lush notes of quince, orange blossom,           spice and hazelnuts with an excellent underlying minerality and lively acidity. Under DOCG regulations,           there must be a minimum of 85% of Fiano Grapes, with the possible addition of up to 15% from a                     selection of Greco or Coda di Volpe Bianca. The wines are usually best drunk between three and five               years, although some from finest vineyards will last as long as seven to ten years:

The appellation received its DOCG status in 2003. The wines must contain a minimum of 85% Greco di Tufo grapes, and up to 15% of Coda di Volpe Bianca grapes is also permitted, at the discretion of each winemaker. A sparkling Greco di Tufo spumante variant can also be made, and must be aged for at least three years prior to release. Greco di Tufo wines stand out from the crowd thanks to the unique characteristics of the sulfur- and tufa-rich volcanic and clay soils; it is believed that these lend the wine its perfume and mineral complexity. The refreshing, crisp white wines are known for their aromatic notes of lemons, pears and toasted almonds and a lingering mineral finish. The wines are generally at their best within three years of bottling.

FEUDI DI SAN GREGORIO.  The beautiful Feudi di San Gregorio vineyards are spread out over lush and gentle hills in Sorbo Serpico, about an hour from Naples and Mount Vesuvius. It's the unique volcanic, sandstone and marly soil of this area that lends the wines their tell-tale aromas of cherry, cinnamon and aniseed. The winery itself has its roots in the ancient varieties and traditions of Campania, but this is by no means an artisan business. Each vineyard is monitored with a meteorological station, and the technologies of the new state-of-the-art wine cellar ensures that each vintage comes as close to perfection as possible.
Taurasi's wine is the referring point for everyones who's willing to learn to appreciate the great qualities of Irpinia 's finest wines. Taurasi town it's the original birth place of famous Aglianico wine, and it is right in this town that in Mr. Antonio Caggiano's cellar best crops of grapes are sapiently worked to produce the only red wine from the Campania region insigned with the highest "DOCG" quality mark: the Taurasi wine
In 1990 it was decided to build the wine centres, from an idea of Antonio Caggiano, partly for pleasure, partly for the challenge, not only to rediscover the smells and flavours previously lost in Taurasi wine, but also to create a small museum of the agricolture tools used in the past. The building has a modern technical structure with an antique taste, the visitor can wander through the centres, which gives the impression of a mysterious underground land, between walls made of a large stones, arches and vaults. For my experience the cellars of Antonia Caggiano are same of the most beautiful cellars in Italy:

Cost for wine tasting at Feudi San Gregorio: 
Eur 15 per person is for the tasting of 4 basic wines. 
Eur 25 per person is for the  tasting of 4 top wines.
The visit at Feudi is two hrs.

After Cantine Caggiano we return to your location by 6:00PM.
