Montepulciano Line: 2020 Awards

Coming out of the past season and confidently looking at next year with a brand-new harvest, Piandimare Winery has recently presented the awards gained by its Montepulciano line in some of the most prestigious international wine competitions.

The event took place on October the 13th at Maglianico’s Golf Club,near the winery. Despite the harvest and the quality control going on, both the President Carlo D’Onofrio and the winemaker Romeo Taraborrelliattended the event.

Many specialized journalists were present at the Golf Club to taste the three Montepulciano wines and share their thoughts about the line: Luca Matarazzo of Vino da Bere, Pasquale Pace of Il Gourmet Errante,Monica Di Pillo of Italia a Tavola, Jenny Viant of Gazzetta del Gusto, Giulia Nekorkina of James Magazine and many others.

The event was also an occasion to give a little preview of the new wines, made with Montepulciano, that Piandimare will soon release.

In what regards the awards, Piandimare is happy with the awards that they received during this strange season of 2020.

Three awards were won from Gilbert & Gaillard :
- 94 points for Maja 2013
- 92 points for Monolith 2017

- gold medal in the red wines category for Blue Label 2018

The Merano Wine Hunter 2020 as given the excellence red sticker (an award given to the wines that get from 90 to 92,9 points) to Maja and Monolith.

The China Wine and Spirits Awards assigned the golden medal to Monolith 2017 and Blue Label 2018, and the silver medal to Maja 2013.

From the Great International Award of Wine MUNDUS VINI 2020 di Meininger the line has collected three golden medals, meaning that every wine has received more than 90 points.

In conclusion, we can say that this has been a great year. For sure a problematic year for our society, but we are happy with our successful line of Montepulciano. This project was very ambitious, and everyone who worked at it put great efforts to make it a success: the big family working everyday at the winery of Piandimare and the agency Civinization, our marketing and commercial consultancy agency based in Venice.
This project has been focusing on many different aspects: enhancing the vineyards, the organic conversion of the vines,creating new wines, meticulously taking care of every part of the winemaking under the leadership of Mr. Taraborrelli.

Yet, its history, tradition and quality are proudly carried on by famous names in the wine world. We then decided to explain this idea through the words of our president Carlo D’Onofrio, who thinks that the time has come for the Montepulciano to get the attention it deserves. Here is what he shared with us about this grape and this territory.
