The Consorzio Tutela Vini Oltrepò Pavese participates in the Spumantitalia 2023 event to be held June 4-6 in Riva del Garda. Great appointment with the world of bubbles with an even richer program and a qualified parterre of the highest oenological level, which is also open to a popular style for all. Where the winner is excellence, also of the tale

Spumantitalia makes bubbles the protagonists with a full calendar of events, not only cultural, such as Master Classes and Talk Shows, which will have as their stage the PalaVela Conference Center venue, but also through two evenings, which will take place on the picturesque Olivi Beach, just over 50 meters from the Palavela, organized under the banner of the effervescence that only a true Festival can give to fans of bubbles.

A glamorous space that on June 4, in addition to hosting the inauguration of the Festival, will see Bubble's Italia magazine award the 100 best Italian companies with the prestigious recognition of Ambassadors of Italian Toast; companies that over the past year have come to the fore not only for their sparkling wine production but have manifested their originality, ingenuity in putting themselves on the line and kept the value of their experience in the sector firm, stimulating comparisons between the various national production realities and opening up to dialogue with operators, communicators and those who love sparkling wines as a form of the highest oenological expression in wine.

Evenings to the rhythm of music that will accompany the show coking in which different chefs from prestigious Italian restaurants will take turns, offering unique pies, some prepared with pasta made with ancient grains, and will be a side dish to Salame di Varzi Dop, to the Nebrodi black ham, to Garda Oil, to Mozzarella di Bufala DOP, to cheeses from all over Italy, and finally there will be, on the evening of June 5, other exceptional tastings such as the one of some samples with first fermentation with cork, curated by Carlos Santos- Amorin Cork and the opening to the volley of "Sleepers."

AN IMPORTANT EDITION

A few numbers of the 2023 edition of the Spumantitalia Festival, scheduled in Riva del Garda June 4-6. It is an event open to the pluralistic value of a National sparkling wine proposal capable of igniting the desire for a serious and constructive confrontation with anyone who values culture. its style and content corroborates the thought that distinguishes this Festival from other initiatives, namely that of including, opening up and uniting, becoming the point of aggregation of the Italian effervescence system.

It is through dialogue and doubt that the quality level of a production system is raised; only through confrontation do we validate the choices made and help the consumer understand the value of what is really happening to Italian bubbly. For the past five years Spumantitalia has been working seriously to give Italian sparkling wines a National value and the rich calendar of events, with Master Classes and Talk Shows, proves it. The bubbles of Italy participating this year have as their stage the venue of the PalaVela Convention Center, and for this we want to start by thanking all those companies that to date have given us confidence and all those that daily register for the Kermesse. They are the ones who will fill the 2000sqm of the Palavela Congress Center in Riva del Garda, and they are always the protagonists of the tastings followed by illustrious names, such as the World President of Oenologists Riccardo Cotarella, oenologists Massimo Tribali, Pierluigi Zema, Mattia Vezzola, Carlo Veronese, director of the Consorzio Tutela Vini Oltrepò Pavese, and many other great professionals in the field assisted by Sissi Baratella.

SPUMANTITALIA MASTER CLASSES

Always unique and original themes proposed during Spumantitalia. Among them "The Classical Method dell’Oltrepò Pavese DOCG," which delves into the evolution of an area with enormous potential. And then: "Mountain Sparkling Wine," which enhances mountain areas characterized by extreme or difficult viticulture. "There is Prosecco and Prosecco": edited by Consorzio di Tutela del Prosecco Superiore di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene DOCG. "A Classical Dress for Indigenous Grapes," a Master Class with which to pay tribute to the wineries that have been working for years to enhance the value of grape varieties identified, rightly or wrongly, as territorial. "A Classical Symphony for Orchestra and Strings," a tasting that recounts the musicality of different terroirs. "Rosé looks in the mirror" and, we add, makes itself beautiful: an in-depth study to understand the enormous difficulty behind this type of wine. "Bubbles of Sicily, a reality to be enhanced," to discover a territory where there is no shortage of surprises in sparkling wine. "The Fruit in the Glass": a tour of Italy through the Italian Method. "Sannio and La Falanghina to savor the pleasantness of a trendy sparkling wine." Finally, Riccardo Cotarella's vision of sparkling wine to give credit to one of the masters of national sparkling wine.

Ten guided tastings, ten opportunities to take a fascinating journey through the Italian sparkling wine system, discovering how one can find oneself involved in an effervescent world while sitting in one place: in Riva del Garda, at the Master Classes of Festival Nazionale Spumantitalia. "Bubbles" from Bolzano to Puglia, from Sicily to Piedmont, offering a varied world of perceptions, fragrances and sensations that will allow, to anyone, to discover how much potential exists in the field of sparkling wine, in Italy. The collection of nearly 100 companies representative of a relatively young movement that only in some cases can boast of a great history, but that in its totality, already today, despite being adolescent, shows an unimaginable vigor and a constructive and programmatic effervescence that has no equal in the world.

At the Festival you will be able to find the synthesis of that billion Italian bottles of sparkling wine that travel the world. Here you will find the fruit in the glass, not a fruit, here you will find the grape varieties that make up the palette of sensory perceptions and you will not fall asleep on the lees, but you will enhance the territoriality that you perceive in the glass and the ability that Italian winemakers have to try and make our sparkling wines unique and inimitable.
