FOREWORDS


Leafing through <strong>the</strong> pages of “<strong>5StarWine</strong>s - <strong>the</strong> <strong>Book</strong> 2018” reveals <strong>the</strong> very best of<br />

world enology. The guide is <strong>the</strong> only one published by an international trade fair and<br />

Veronafiere is proud of this format—<strong>the</strong> result of an innovative project that is becoming<br />

increasingly well-established among sector operators. This popularity is demonstrated<br />

by <strong>the</strong> growing number of wines entered for this initiative—more than 2.700 from 965<br />

wineries in 14 countries.<br />

The conventional printed format is also complemented by <strong>the</strong> agreement reached<br />

with Wine-Searcher, one of <strong>the</strong> world’s most famous on-line wine search engines, to<br />

develop a catalogue of labels selected by <strong>5StarWine</strong>s. This is yet ano<strong>the</strong>r contribution<br />

to <strong>the</strong> promotion of <strong>the</strong> selected wines, which, in this way, gain access to internationally<br />

renowned, high-visibility channels that are even used by final consumers.<br />

An opening out to markets and visitors that moves in <strong>the</strong> direction of increasingly<br />

effective use of digital systems for business purposes in order to expand contact<br />

opportunities between <strong>the</strong> wine cellars attending Vinitaly and buyers from all over <strong>the</strong><br />

world. Veronafiere and Vinitaly are investing a great deal in this route as part of <strong>the</strong><br />

overall digital transformation project. This new tool follows up <strong>the</strong> Vinitaly Directory, <strong>the</strong><br />

4.0 evolution of <strong>the</strong> on-line catalogue listing more than 15.500 wines just a click away<br />

from more than 4.370 wineries of 36 countries presented in Italian, English and Chinese.<br />

In this context, “<strong>5StarWine</strong>s - <strong>the</strong> <strong>Book</strong>” is ano<strong>the</strong>r vital tool for Vinitaly that promotes<br />

<strong>the</strong> efforts of wine-makers on international markets—even those in less well-known<br />

production areas but with high quality potential—in <strong>the</strong>ir work to improve production.<br />

This mission has been part of Vinitaly’s DNA for 52 editions: a tool at <strong>the</strong> service of<br />

promotion and development of <strong>the</strong> Italian and international wine-making sector.<br />

President of Veronafiere<br />

In a world where trends all seem to have a digital focus, presenting yourself on <strong>the</strong><br />

market with a printed guide such as “<strong>5StarWine</strong>s - <strong>the</strong> <strong>Book</strong>” may seem to be a choice<br />

out of step with <strong>the</strong> times. Yet, we believe that people still need physical things—and<br />

books, like wine, are highly symbolic objects sharing an extraordinary ability to convey<br />

emotions.<br />

Publishing a book is never<strong>the</strong>less an achievement. Therefore, I wish to congratulate<br />

more than 420 wineries and 625 wines that have earned <strong>the</strong>ir place in <strong>the</strong> pages of this<br />

second edition (601 wines selected for <strong>5StarWine</strong>s and 24 for <strong>the</strong> Wine Without Walls<br />

section).<br />

At <strong>the</strong> same time, we are keen to blend tradition and innovation as Vinitaly’s digital<br />

transformation continues to move forward with great emphasis in support of important<br />

projects such as <strong>5StarWine</strong>s.<br />

The analysis of big-data for Vinitaly 2018 shows that <strong>the</strong> 10 most-visited exhibitors are<br />

all producers of wines selected by <strong>5StarWine</strong>s. For this reason, as of Vinitaly <strong>2019</strong>, we<br />

intend to extend <strong>the</strong> range of digital services offered to <strong>the</strong>se producers by introducing<br />

proximity notifications to selected buyers, semantic catalogue search tools, and analysis<br />

of social sentiment.<br />

Inasmuch, <strong>the</strong> goal as ever is to look at opportunities for <strong>the</strong> future without ever<br />

forgetting our roots—as we have learned from <strong>the</strong> best wine producers to whom we<br />

pay tribute with this Guide that we will proudly take with us around <strong>the</strong> world (and over<br />

<strong>the</strong> web).<br />

I would like to thank <strong>the</strong> tireless and enthusiastic <strong>5StarWine</strong>s team for this edition: Gaia,<br />

Andrea, Karla, Marina, Michele, Federico, Alice, Maya, Giulia, Giacomo, Marco, Veronica,<br />

Lucrezia, Luca, Maria, Mauro, Francesco, Franco, Sabrina, Bruno, Stefano, Ivana, Lenalisa,<br />

Marta, Elisa, Silvia, and everybody else at Vinitaly International and Veronafiere that I am<br />

sure I have forgotten (and my apologies for that). Their contribution in <strong>the</strong> organization,<br />

communication, promotion, and implementation of this small yet ambitious event has<br />

been key to its growth. Gianni Bruno, Brand Manager at Vinitaly, and his dedicated team<br />

also deserve a special shout out for <strong>the</strong>ir support and for believing in this project from<br />

<strong>the</strong> get go.<br />

We are grateful to ICE-ITA for <strong>the</strong>ir support in bringing to Verona such a competent<br />

and international panel of judges from all over <strong>the</strong> world.<br />

We would also like to extend a special thanks to Giacomo Moretti and Andrea Zanni, <strong>the</strong><br />

lead enologists from Assoenologi, for <strong>the</strong>ir seamless organization of <strong>the</strong> wines before,<br />

during, and after <strong>the</strong> event.<br />

Nobody can undertake a project like <strong>5StarWine</strong>s alone. I am incredibly grateful to this<br />

motivated team that always worked efficiently even during <strong>the</strong> most stressful moments.<br />

Grazie di cuore a tutti!<br />

JUDGES


JUDGES<br />

The significance of <strong>5StarWine</strong>s - <strong>the</strong> <strong>Book</strong> lies in <strong>the</strong> highly-qualified,<br />

international panel of judges comprised of Masters of Wine, Master<br />

Sommeliers, sommeliers, wine journalists, and oenologists. Under <strong>the</strong><br />

scientific guidance of Ian D’Agata, <strong>the</strong> international team of judges was<br />

led by an expert panel of General Chairmen: Pedro Ballesteros Torres,<br />

(Master of Wine from Spain and Member of <strong>the</strong> Governing Council of <strong>the</strong><br />

Institute of Masters of Wine); Bernard Burtschy, (President of <strong>the</strong> French<br />

Wine Press and columnist for Le Figaro); and Robert Joseph, (Editor<br />

at Large for Meininger’s Wine Business International). Ian D’Agata<br />

comments on <strong>the</strong> expertise of <strong>the</strong> Chairmen: “This panel was specially<br />

selected for <strong>the</strong>ir deep knowledge of native grapes”. Wines were initially<br />

tasted by working panels of judges and assigned points up to 100. In order<br />

to receive <strong>the</strong> <strong>5StarWine</strong>s recognition, wines that scored 90 or above<br />

during <strong>the</strong> first panel tasting were re-sampled by <strong>the</strong> General Chairmen.<br />

The assemble of judges consisted of 95 professionals with high<br />

credentials. In addition to MWs, sommeliers, wine journalists,<br />

and winemakers, <strong>5StarWine</strong>s judges are also Michelin-starred<br />

restaurateurs, importers, educators, and o<strong>the</strong>r wine sector<br />

professionals that give this guide immense credibility and standing.<br />

On <strong>the</strong> importance of <strong>the</strong> <strong>5StarWine</strong>s selection from a marketing<br />

perspective, Pedro Ballesteros adds: “From a professional point of view,<br />

it’s good for Italian wines. Here <strong>the</strong>re is a majority of foreign experts<br />

in wine who will be able to position Italian wines in relation to <strong>the</strong>ir<br />

competitors from o<strong>the</strong>r country. They are going to introduce an element<br />

of ‘international taste’, which should be extremely helpful for Italian<br />

producers. <strong>5StarWine</strong>s should be a major tool for Italian producers<br />

to receive feedback on how <strong>the</strong> quality of <strong>the</strong>ir wines is perceived by<br />

top-level experts from all over <strong>the</strong> world. A unique opportunity for<br />

Italian producers to source precious information about <strong>the</strong>ir wines.”<br />

The expert international panel of judges coupled with <strong>the</strong> participation<br />

of over 2.700 wines from continents such as Europe, Asia, North and<br />

South America highlights <strong>the</strong> growing importance of <strong>5StarWine</strong>s<br />

globally.<br />
