Wine aficionados love our authentic Italian wine selection at Mia Francesca Trattoria. Our restaurant is focused on being the best Italian restaurant in the Triangle. The Northern Italian fare experienced is a favorite of everyone who visits our convenient location in the heart of Raleigh’s Midtown in North Hills. With respect to our appealing wines, we emphasize the top two wine classifications in Italian wine labeling: DOCG and DOC. We only serve the finest wines available and combine it with our locally and fresh grown gourmet cuisine.
Let’s discuss the two distinctive acronyms involving wine quality and labeling:
DOCG is really the abbreviation for “Demonimazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita” which translates from Italian as the highest quality first-class wines available. These superb wines must pass several taste tests before bottling. There are twenty DOCG wine regions in Italy:
- Northeast—Veneto, Trentino-Alto Adige, and Friuli-Venezia
- North and Northwest—Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna, Piedmont, Liguria, and Aosta Valley
- Central—Tuscany, Lazio, Umbria, Marche, Abruzzo, and Molise
- South—Campania, Basilicata, Puglia, Calabria, and the islands of Sicily and Sardinia
DOC is “Demonimazione di Origine Controllata” which translates to wines that are made grown based on the highest specific quality regulations. The Italian wine designations help to preserve the finest traditions unique to their respective regions. There are more than three-hundred DOC’s in Italy. As we all know, the country is famous for its beautiful and bountiful vineyards.
For trivia buffs, in Italy the name of each wine typically comes from the vineyard where it is harvested, but never the grape. At Mia Francesca Trattoria, our selective wine list is 100% pleasure and served with distinction. After your meal or appetizer in our bar, be sure to enjoy our heavenly desserts. We help make every guest have the warmest memories with each dining experience.
Do you have a large group? Our private dining areas accommodate for special events such as birthdays, wedding rehearsals, anniversaries, and bar/bat mitzvahs. For elegant fine dining in a rustic atmosphere, Mia Francesca Trattoria is the restaurant of choice in the Triangle. We welcome everyone to make a reservation and prepare to enjoy every moment!
