The excellence of the 2015 vintage of Brunello di Montalcino (with 2 labels awarded) and the 2016 vintage of Barolo, the increasingly widespread quality of Chianti Classico (as in 2019 the most awarded territory, with 3 labels), the greatness of Tuscany (along with Brunello and Chianti Classico also Nobile di Montepulciano and more) and Piedmont, with its different expressions (from Barbera d’Asti to Barbaresco, passing through Gattinara), the ability of Italian wine to express excellence everywhere, from the Dolomites of Trentino to Puglia, from Friuli to Soave, up to Basilicata: this is the story, in extreme synthesis, of the 2020 “Top 100” of Wine Spectator, the most influential wine ranking on the market, which, after unveiling the “Top 10”, which saw on the podium the Brunello di Montalcino Le Lucerè 2015 of San Filippo, and no. 7 the Barolo 2016 by Massolino (and at no. 1 overall the Rioja Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial 2010 by Bodegas Marqués de Murrieta), today unveiled the complete list of wines selected by the US magazine based on quality, price, market availability and “excitement” of the wines. 19 in all, the Italian wines.
