The sparkling flora, Pinot Grigio Trame’s Bonarda Gallesio, Pinot nero Moretto, Sangue di Giuda Molinazzo and Moscato Declive were the protagonists at the end of the competition: it is no coincidence that they were wines that received gold and silver medals at international level and judged by Italian Finest Wines among the best Italians, there was no lack of Riesling Viteus and Buttafuoco Ca del Cervo judged Rhapsodic by the great Daniel Thomases. And to finish off with a flourish, the new Chardonnay Podere San Carlo was tasted, a grand cru of very limited production by Cantine Vitea, which Faravelli is ready to export, not only to the Swiss Confederation.
