The great classics of Italian wine aging, from Barolo to Barbaresco, from Brunello di Montalcino to Nobile di Montepulciano, from Supertuscan to Amarone della Valpolicella, to mention a few, but also red expressions such as Chianti Rufina, Gattinara and L’Etna, and white territories that for years have been working to break away from the concept of “vintage wine”, and increasingly marry that of longevity, such as Soave and Verdicchio: there is all this in the “Top 100 Cellar Selection” 2019 of the USA magazine “Wine Enthusiast”, which every year indicates the wines of the world that come out on the market, and that according to the critics of the magazine (the Italian editor is Kerin O’Keefe) will give the best of them in 10-15 years. And so, if at no. 1 absolute there is the Porto Quinta do Seixto 2017 of Sandeman, and at no. 2 Pauillac 2016 by Chateau Ponte Canet (both rated 100/100, like 6 other wines in the ranking), first of the 17 Italians, on the lowest step of the podium, is Barbaresco 2016 by Castello di Neive, followed, in the “top 10”, by Soave Classico Calvarino 2016 by Pieropan, at no. 6, and Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso 2013 by Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona. And then, little by little, along the ranking, there is the Chianti Rufina Vigneto Bucerchiale Riserva 2015 of Selvapiana, the Barbaresco Montestefano 2016 of La Ca’ Nova, the Barolo Cerretta 2015 of Ettore Germano and the Barolo Sarmassa 2015 of Brezza, the Vino Nobile of Montepulciano Mulinvecchio 2015 of Contucci, the Terre Siciliane Contrada G Nerello Mascalese of Passopisciaro, the Soave Classico La Froscà 2016 by Gini, the Barolo Prapò 2015 by Paolo Scavino, the Cepparello 2016 by Isole e Olena, the Gattinara Riserva 2013 by Travaglini, the Verdicchio dei Castelli by Jesi Classico Villa Bucci Riserva 2016 by Bucci, the Barbaresco Costa Russi 2015 by Gaja, the Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Lena di Mezzo 2013 by Monte del Frà, and the Tignanello 2015 by Marchesi Antinori.
