Of the wines admitted to the final and blind-tasted, 491 reached the Crown, 1.88% of the total, while the remaining 209 are Golden Star. In total, about 26,000 samples were sampled from all Italian regions.

The award of the Crown was assigned by the three committees of ViniBuoni in Italy, where – during the finals – the regional coordinators were subdivided, but were excluded from voting on the vineyards of their own region.

With “Today I decide the Crown” to the coordinators were added the jury composed of journalists and wine lovers, who have tasted at the same time the same wines.

The project has received a strong interest among the public.

#chardonnay, #SelezioneDelSindaco, selezione del sindaco

Selection of the Mayor 2017 has seen participation of over 1100 labels from all over Europe. The Great Gold Medals reach 23 units.

The OIV’s Regulation, which governs the Mayor’s Selection, sets variable thresholds for both medals and minimum assignment scores. Once subscriptions have been closed, only 30% of the participating labels can receive a medal, this year they were 350. As a result, the number of medals also fixes the minimum value of the entry level medal.

Scores: 92 for the Golden Medal, 87 for Gold Medal, 82 secures the Silver Medal, 80 for the Bronze.

This year the label to which the last Silver Medal was awarded has received 86 points setting very high the award threshold. No Bronze medals and the number of Gold Medals exceeded that of the Silver ones. The qualitative level of the wines pssed through the screening of the International Commissions falls into the highest standards ever seen.

Bibenda 2017 – 5 grappoli assigned to Le Prisonnier.

This extreme wine has achieved over the years a quality that could be associated exclusively to larger labels. The different vintages as well as weather conditions are never the same, the temperature ranges, that vary from year to year, determine a wine showing different sensations in the nose and in the mouth, but it has never shown any downgrading of level.

A feature of the great wine tradition.
The blend of Petit Rouge, Cornalin, Fumin and Mayolet, associated with the aging in French barriques of different roasting and use, make round and uniform the different vintages.

Torrette Superieur 2014: W.S. 91/100


Wine Spectator, opinion leader in the North American market in wines, awarded to the Vallée d’Aoste Torrette Superieur 2014 from Maison Anselmet a high score (91 over 100), an acknowledgment almost unexpected for the Maison considering the fact this is a base wine.


The WineSpectator tasting has a precise and well-established procedure, it is a blind taste, done without knowing the producer, the bottle is bought and evaluated by the editors, full proof and transparency to protect consumers who rely on the judgment of experts as judges.

For us any wine – said Giorgio Anselmet – from the simplest up to the award-winning Semel as Pater and Chardonnay élève en fût de chêne, deserves the same care and attention both in the winery and in the vineyard. Our company has a reputation for high quality, earned through years of hard work, and we work hard every day to keep it; surely the judgment of Wine Spectator makes me doubly happy just because to win it was a wine for us considered basic and no least why it keeps highest the value of my land.

As a matter of fact, the Cellar in Villeneuve tends to send in tasting for publication on the guides the wines of top range. At this very moment the 2017 results are now coming out: GamberoRosso awarded “Tre Bicchieri” to Chardonnay élève en fût de chêne, SlowFood says Petite Arvine is a “GrandeVino”, Bibenda has awarded Le Prisoner with the “5 Grappoli” flag; receive from Wine Spectator such a high score for a base wine is a source of great pride.
