“Decanter Wine Awards” 2024, Italy on the podium behind France and Spain

Broccardo’s Barolo Bricco San Pietro 2020, Fratelli Monchiero’s Montanello 2020, Cesari’s Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Bosan 2015, Carpineto’s Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2018, Cantina Andriano’s Juvelo Passito Gewürztraminer 2022 and Casale del Giglio’s Anthium Bellone 2023: these are the 6 Italian “Best in Show” at the “Decanter Wine Awards” 2024, or the best of wine produced in Italy according to the most prestigious wine competition in the United Kingdom and among the most important in the world, signed by “Decanter” magazine.
One bottle less than last year - when those crowned were seven - and that added to the 18 wines on the “Platinum” list (one step below the “Best in Show”, ed.) and all the other categories, make Italy the third country in the overall final ranking behind France and Spain. It is Piedmont that holds the record of the most represented region and that in all obtained 20 medals: in addition to the two Barolo wines from the 2020 vintage in the “Best in Show”, there are also four “Platinum” and 14 “Gold”, including the first ever awarded to a varietal wine: the Grignolino Le Nocche 2022 from Vinchio Vaglio. Veneto and Tuscany also did well with 17 and 15 medals respectively, driven by great classic wines: in fact, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva and Brunello di Montalcino Riserva are among the 50 best “Best in Show” wines in the world.
Great result for Lazio, which for the first time with Casale del Giglio’s Anthium Bellone del 2023 places one of its wines among the best in the world, garnering praise from judges who describe it as “refined, solid and generous with flavors. Characteristics that give it a wide range of gastronomic applications”. In the North, wines from Trentino-Alto Adige impressed: Cantina Andriano’s Juvelo Passito Gewürztraminer 2022 is the first sweet wine from the region to rank among the top 50. In the South, however, Sicily stood out with 2 “Platinum” and 5 “Gold” medals: Sardinia, Puglia and Campania also did well, with Vernice’s Fiano di Avellino Glam sold for less than 15 pounds a bottle (nearly 18 euros) also earning a place in the Top20 “Value Gold”, the best value wines.
Globally, France is the big winner of the competition with 12 “Best in Show” and 28 “Platinum” medals, more than any other country. The regional champions are Burgundy and Champagne, with 9 awards each in the two categories, with the former placing three bottles among the world’s best (all whites and from the 2022 vintage, Château De Fuissé’s Pouilly-Fuissé 1er Cru Le Clos Monopole, Domaine Berthelemot’s Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru and Maison Jaffelin’s Rully) against the other’s two (Castelnau’s Brut 2006 and Charles Heidsieck’s Blanc Des Millénaires Brut 2014). Australia does not repeat the exploit of 2023, but still places eight bottles among the “Best in Show” and is second only to the French. For Spain, the wines judged best in the world are 7.
