More than a thousand Oltrepo Pavese labels were tasted by the experts of the Guides who attended Riccagioia di Torrazza Coste (PV) in recent months. A meticulous organization, bordering on ritual, that the secretariat of the Consorzio Tutela Vini Oltrepò Pavese with that of the Quality Wines District conducts with passion and attention. The sommelier dedicated to pouring is Fabrizio Morandi Lisi with organization and cataloging taken care of by Gaia Servidio and Mila Pifferi.
The 2022 Wine Guides tasting course will conclude with Falstaff and Sparkle experts at the end of July. In the meantime, tasters from Vini buoni d'Italia (indigenous section), Wines Critic, Doctor Wine and Gambero Rosso attended Riccagioia di Torrazza Coste, the headquarters of Consorzio, the wine tasters.
Positive are the first reactions from tasters who report an increase in the average quality of the wines tasted, especially in the Classic Method and Riesling categories, and this is the only anticipation allowed pending the publications.
