by Redaktion (comments: 0)
The 5th edition of BiodiVino, the exhibition that annually awards the best Italian wines from organic or biodynamic grapes, was a great success. BiodiVino 2008 was organised by the Province of Alessandria – Department of Agriculture, by the association Città del Bio, and by AIAB (Italian Association for Organic Agriculture), in collaboration with the Municipality of Trisobbio (AL). The success of this year’s edition was visible by the number of participants – more than 300 wines were sent from all Italian regions.
Piedmont had sent 67 wines and was therefore the region represented the most, followed by Tuscany that had sent 60 wines for competition. The gold medals for the best organic wines were given to four manufacturers: San Zeno of Fasoli Colognola ai Colli (Veneto), Villa Guani of the brothers Rovero of Asti (Piedmont), L’Autentica of the cellars of Notaio die Maschito (Basilicata), and Col di Pietre Rosse of the company Bulichella di Suvereto (Tuscany).
This year, for the first time, the same committee as for "The Mayor’s Selection 2008" - the competition organised by Città del Vino - with over 50 judges from all over Europe evaluated the samples. The organic wines received very good result: 73.65% of the samples sent received a score higher than or equal to 80/100, and therefore will be included in the guide "Vini da Vedere." In addition to the gold medals, 25 silver medals and 79 special mentions were awarded. On June 26, together with the “Selection of the Mayor”, the awards ceremony will take place in Rome.
