With wine guide season in full swing in Italy, we are thrilled to report that the Pievalta 2010 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Riserva San Paolo has received both the coveted “Three Glass” award from the Gambero Rosso Guide to the Wines of Italy and the “Prize for Excellence” from the L’Espresso Guide to the Wines of Italy, obtaining the highest score of any wine in its category.
Not a bad week for the little winery that could!
Congratulations to Alessandro Fenino and Pievalta for a superb job! And congratulations to the entire team at Barone Pizzini-Pievalta for a much deserved accolade!
Pievalta is Castelli di Jesi’s first Demeter-certified biodynamic estate.
