VINITALY 2017, Pavilion 6, Stand B6 – Rocca Bernarda, Castello di Magione and Villa Giustiniani, three historic wine estates, will debut their new stand at VinItaly April 9-12. This year we come with a slew of wins: Gold and Silver Medals from international competitions, a Slow Wine Award, and elegant new labels that reflect our important legacy.
First, a Gold Medal from Gilbert & Gaillard for the Extra Dry Prosecco DOCG from Villa Giustiniani. The sparkling wine is 100% Glera grapes, with rich fruity and floral aromas and notes of hawthorn and acacia. In the mouth it is elegant with great character, well balanced sweetness, and a remarkable freshness. It is grown in the Montello hills, whose red soil, rich in iron, conveys longevity and complexity to the wine.
Equally important is the Silver Medal at the Concours Mondial du Sauvignon awarded to the Rocca Bernarda winery, whose 2015 vintage is now ranked as one of the best white wines in the world. An exciting wine, it boasts an intense, elegant nose that recalls yellow flowers, mint, peppers, and tomato leaves. It delivers an impressive combination of elegance, minerality, aromas, and flavor, with a long-lasting finish. This year the brand also re-launches its great wines with elegant new labels. They feature the writings of the scholar and scientist Count Giacomo Perusini, author of a treatise on Picolit in 1906 and of the Ribolla Gialla, that recall his vision for the vineyards over a century ago.
This year as well, Castello di Magione’s Sangiovese Umbria IGT 2015 was awarded Vino Quotidiano Slow in the Slow Wine Guide, which recognizes wines of excellent quality produced with an eco-friendly approach. It is a young, fresh red table wine with excellent structure from the historic medieval estate near Lake Trasimeno.
Come meet the team and try wines that marry centuries of tradition with sustainable techniques – experience the aroma of history.
