Guides: many award-winning wineries. Cantine del Notaio 8 out of 8

There are very few individual wines capable of uniting the Italian wine guides across the nation, as we had written in our article on individual wines. The number expands when seeing the wineries (albeit with different wines) that received the highest level of recognition from various publications. One winery appeared on the lists of all the “best2 8 guides released this year for the 2021 edition (Gambero Rosso, Slow Wine, Doctor Wine by Cernilli, Vitae-Italian Sommelier Association, Bibenda-Italian Sommelier Foundation, Seminar Veronelli, Touring Club-Vinibuoni d’Italia and Luca Maroni’s Yearbook of the Best Italian Wines, while L’Espresso, probably to be released in April 2021, was missing); the Lucanian, Cantine del Notaio by Gerardo Giuratrabocchetti, one of Basilicata wine’s gems, famous for its many expressions of Aglianico, the main grape of Vulture, but not only. This occurred by simply crossing the highest awards the various guides reported, according to their own particular criteria. The guides outlined a core of producers capable of expressing great quality in several different wines, made up of both big and small entirely different companies, scattered from Trentino Alto Adige to Sicily. The wineries awarded by 7 out of 8 guides, included the South Tyrolean Terlano, Tramin, Cantina di Bolzano and Cantina Girlan, the Trentino Ferrari and Pojer & Sandri, the Venetian Pieropan, Tedeschi and Allegrini, the Piedmont Fratelli Alessandria, Vietti and Marchesi di Grésy, the Lombardy Guido Berlucchi and Ca’ del Bosco, the Tuscan Poggio di Sotto and Mastrojanni, both in Montalcino, the Umbrian Lungarotti, the Marche Umani Ronchi, Velenosi and Belisario, from Campania, Rocca del Principe and the Sicilian Donnafugata, Tasca d’Almerita and Cottanera.

It is, therefore, a long “parade” of the Italian wine stars, telling the stories of the very large number of wine producers that are also very different one from the other, but equally capable of expressing excellence in the bottle. It is a tale of territories, research, intuitions, experimentation, vines and history, all brought together in the glass.
