Three wines from Sicily, of which two from Etna (the Etna Rosso Contrada Sciaranuova V.V. 2016 from Tasca d’Almerita and the Etna Rosso Pre-phylloxera Vico 2016 from Tenute Bosco, in addition to the Terre Siciliane Nero Ossidiana 2016 from Tenuta di Castellaro), three from Tuscany (the G. Point 2018 of Duemani, the Liù 2018 of Castello dei Rampolla and the Val d'Arno di Sopra Bòggina C 2018 of Petrolo), three from Piedmont (the Colli Tortonesi Timorasso Fausto 2016 of Vigne Marina Coppi, the Langhe Nebbiolo Claré J.C. 2019 of G.D. Vajra and the Barolo Undicomuni 2016 by Arnaldo Rivera), two from Campania (the Greco di Tufo Goleto 2017 by Tenute Capaldo, winery of Feudi di San Gregorio, and the Phos 2017 by Roccamonfina de I Cacciagalli) and one from Alto Adige (the Valle Isarco Kerner 2018 by Köfererhof): these are the 12 Italian wines to discover in the “Robert Parker Wine Advocate Top 100 Wine Discoveries 2020” n. 1 (preview for subscribers, from November 17th on line for everyone), the new “chart” that, from this year, is published by one of the most authoritative publications in the world of wine, realized giving priority to wines that tell values, that are able to be long-lived, produced in a sustainable way, and that, in some way, tell an innovative approach, in the vineyard, in the cellar and not only. It is not a ranking, as “The Wine Advocate” (whose Italian editor is Monica Larner, editor’s note) points out, but a list of 100 wines to discover, all with the same weight, and with the theme of sustainability among the most important in the choice. A list, the “Robert Parker Wine Advocate Top 100 Wine Discoveries 2020”, which looks at many wine-producing countries, such as Italy and France, USA and Canada, Australia and New Zealand, Argentina and Chile, Germany and Austria, Spain and Portugal, but also South Africa and Cyprus, China and Lebanon, to tell an oenological kaleidoscope of worldwide view all to discover.
An important recognition, which turns the light on territories and producers, and which is even more important given the authoritativeness of the magazine, and also the difficult moment that all wine producers are experiencing. “I am very happy, for the company, for the territory and for Sicily - comments Alberto Tasca, at the helm of Tasca d’Almerita, to WineNews - because it means that we have made a lot of progress, and the many international awards received in recent months confirm this. This is one of the “top” among the most authoritative given the source from which it comes, and at a time like this it is even more so. For Sicily as a whole it is an important goal, yet another confirmation that it is no longer a Region of second place. And that Etna is a diamond among diamonds, on which we have invested so much”. From Campania echoes Antonio Capaldo, guide of the Capaldo Estates, “a company that was born inside Feudi di San Gregorio, where we chose two vineyards, one of Greco and Taurasi, where we do a different job than Feudi. Where there is a willingness to experiment new ways for native vines. I’m really very happy, also because 2017 is the first vintage of Greco di Tufo Goleto, a wine that comes from one of our selections, from a particular vineyard born in the project FeudiStudi, where among other things we also played with the winemaking, making a passage in wood that do not make, for example, the white wines of Feudi. The Greco, for me, is one of the most beautiful and interesting varieties in the world. They are important awards, awards that are an encouragement to go forward with ideas and projects, and then in a difficult period like this the good news is even more beautiful”. Immense satisfaction also comes from the vineyards in the Tortonese Hills of Vigne Marina Coppi, a winery named after the firstborn of the great Fausto Coppi, a legend of Italian and world cycling, and mother of Francesco Bellocchio, who leads the winery with his wife Anna, who comments: “it is a recognition that really comes unexpectedly. And that confirms how the Timorasso, in recent years, is establishing itself not as a fashion, but as one of the best Italian white wines. It is an important, structured, long-lived, exceptional wine. A recognition like this is a real pleasure, also because it comes at a complicated time, after some belief that we will all start from scratch, and we will have to put ourselves back in the game. It is a great emotion and a great stimulus for a company as small as we are, and born just 15 years ago”.
