“Decanter World Wine Awards”, a triumph of Italian diversity, and of “His Majesty” Barolo

8 “Best in Show” out of 50 awarded, 37 platinum medals out of 178, including the hat-trick of Cantina di Terlano in Alto Adige and the double medal of Fontanafredda, in the Langhe, and Piedmont, as the Region most awarded with 12, of which 10 Barolo, 83 gold medals out of 537: these are the highlights of the rich booty brought home from Italy to the “Decanter World Wine Awards”, the magazine of reference on the Uk market, “Decanter”, which saw 16. 518 wines judged by the palates of 116 world experts, including 37 Master of Wine and 9 Master Sommeliers. Awards that recognize even more that the real strength of the Belpaese is the great and excellent diversity expressed in the glass, as explained by the “Regional Chair for Southern Italy”, the wine writer Anthony Rose: “when you look at Italy as a whole, it is extraordinary: it is actually the most diversified wine country in the world, even more than France, and this gives you the opportunity to look at a surprising range of different styles”. Nevertheless, in the great chorus of Italian wine excellence, some soloists stand out, such as the already mentioned Barolo, which is not only the Italian wine that collects more platinum medals, but also the only one with two “Best in Show”, the Barolo Aculei 2016 from La Bioca, and the Barolo 2016 from L’ Astemia Pentita. Among the absolute best, other great classics, such as the Barbaresco Spezie Riserva 2010 by Vite Colte, again from Piedmont, the Brunello di Montalcino 2015 by the historic Argiano, from Tuscany, two different expressions of South Tyrol, such as the Aristos Kerner 2018 by Cantina Valle Isarco and the Lagrein Maturum Riserva 2017 by K. Martini & Sohn, but also the Sagrantino di Montefalco 2016 by Moretti Omero, and the Etna Bianco Superiore Contrada Villagrande 2017 by Baron di Villagrande, wine testimonies of an Italy of wine increasingly able to assert itself in the world with its indigenous grape varieties and its most diverse territories.
Among the golds, many famous names of Italian wine, from Batasiolo to Borgogno and Santa Barbara, unique with 2 golds, from Terre del Barolo to Bortolomiol, from Campo alla Sughera to Fasoli Gino, from Lunae Bosoni to Marchesi di Barolo, from Poggio al Tesoro to Barone Ricasoli, from Tiefenbrunner to Zyme, from Sordo to Velenosi, from La Fuga to Zonin, just to name a few.
