Tre Bicchieri champions

Posted on October 18, 2010 by Enotriaadmin There have been 0 comments

As ever at this time of year the Gambero Rosso, Italy's foremost wine publication, releases (tantalisingly, one region each day) the coveted 'Tre Bicchieri' (three glasses) awards. The Gambero Rosso team taste each year over 2300 wines, and this year 402 won the highest distinction.

We are really pleased to have 16 wines which were awarded Tre Bicchieri in our range. From the whole length of the country, we hope it shows how consistently excellent our Italian range is. Everything from top class Barolo to Nero d'Avola and 3 different Fianos made the grade. Roberta Ursa, of Mandrarossa in Sicily, has just returned from picking up their award for Cartagho in Rome. She says "I felt good sharing the same stage as Franco Biondi Santi, Angelo Gaia and Sassicaia!". A worthy champion indeed.
