2020 will be remembered above all for the Covid-19 pandemic which, to date, is still

affecting many countries around the world. It has affected humanity first and foremost

in health and affection, whilst also hitting economies hard. It is human nature not to

stop, to get up, to fight and to continue its activities.

The world of trade fairs has also been hit hard, in the first half of this year alone, the

25 leading European trade fair organizers recorded losses of 130 billion euros. There is

unanimous agreement that the trade fair system is one of the fundamental assets for

restarting the international economy, since it accounts for 50% of SME exports and

generates a total value of €251 billion worldwide.

At Veronafiere, we have worked in recent months to build a renewed way of organizing

events, strongly oriented towards safeguarding the business of clients with agile, digital

and secure formats. The market needs an engine that is already running to guarantee

a new start, but above all a relaunch; a new international positioning on an export road

map disrupted by the global health emergency.

This is why we have maintained a dialogue with our customers and markets using

numerous digital initiatives, such as 5StarWines - the Book, which is linked to the Vinitaly

ecosystem of events and initiatives. Today more than ever our role is fundamental for

the development of the economy that needs a new physical-digital paradigm and a

complementary offer for the business.

All this with the ultimate goal of creating integrated events, able to merge the physical

and digital aspects and connect the communities of the relevant sectors 365 days a

year… and above all to be able to look back toward 2021 with renewed confidence.

This year’s edition of 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls is one that that we will all

remember. A special edition for decidedly extraordinary, certainly unexpected, times.

But nothing detracts from the value of this initiative by Veronafiere and Vinitaly. On the

contrary, it reinforces it. At a time when certainties are crumbling and the globalised

world seems to withdraw and close in on itself, this authoritative guide has managed

to keep the connection between the protagonists of wine and their products alive;

connecting wines, wineries, markets, old and new consumers - all on an international

scale. A challenging feat, considering the emergency situation in which we all found

ourselves catapulted, with borders suddenly closed and flights cancelled.

I have always liked to think, however, that here at Veronafiere we are incurable optimists,

convinced that in every difficulty we can hide an opportunity. With this certainty we

have taken up the challenge: to create 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls 2020 with

a new “phigital” format that integrates physical and digital experience, in order to

achieve the “new normality” and fully play our role as an innovative hub at the service

of business.

From this idea was born this year’s “Agile” edition in which a selected panel of 52 judges

carried out blind tastings of over 2,100 samples, sent by more than 700 companies.

Each panelist was connected by video conference from their country, to ensure the

selections integrity. The result of this great work and organizational effort can be found

in the pages of this publication in which we selected 847 wines of excellence for you.

We did it in the certainty that we could provide an updated and accredited tool to

make the difference between professionals in the on-trade, buyers, and distributors.

We are acutely aware that - to paraphrase the unforgettable Steve Jobs - investing in

promotion in times of crisis is like building wings while others fall.

This above pic is symbolic of exactly what happened this year. Yes, we were all adorned with

masks. Every year organizing 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls presents a new challenge

and 2020 may have presented our biggest yet; how to proceed with the selection and

support both our judges and wine producers, in period of severe disruption due to Covid-19.

Given the rapid development of the pandemic, it was necessary to maintain flexibility,

constantly revising the format in order to cope with any new measures as they became

apparent. However, our team embraced such circumstances as opportunities to promote

Italian wine by reshaping 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls.

The heart of the selection was kept the same; only the “where” and the “how” were adapted

to respect the limitations put in place to limit Covid-19 exposure – both travel restrictions

and constraints on gathering. The tasting methodology, the objectivity of the selection, and

the cooperation between the judges remained unchanged. Everyone was committed to

the same cause: to sustain the Italian wine industry despite the economic uncertainties and

international promotion difficulties.

Despite the increased logistical challenges, the selection was able to go ahead in its

newly realized “agile” format; bringing together more than 50 judges around Europe to

taste “together” online, connected via video conferencing and evaluating the wines on a

tailor-made WebApp.

New technologies were embraced, wine shipments frantically tracked, and nerves duly tested!

However, we found ourselves with an innovative new format for wine selection, that

maintained its integrity and high standards whilst adapting to ever-changing circumstances.

For this I am proud of, and grateful for, the cooperation and enthusiasm given by the General

Chairmen, Judges, and the extended team throughout the organization of the Selection.

Let me remind readers that the main objective of 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls is to

facilitate the showcase of participating producers with a special attention to the awardees.

There has never been a more important time to send positive signals and recognize the

wonderful (award-winning!) work being done by winemakers.

Thanks to the dedication of the team and Judges before, during and after the tasting days

we have been able to continue the work of selecting these “5StarWines” and presenting

them to as broad an audience as possible.

Each year the tasting finishes late into the evening, and this year was no exception, with

committed judges at home often working long into the evening to complete their tastings,

and the Special Committee of the judges in Verona – Daniele Cernilli, Monty Waldin and

Gabriele Gorelli – assessing and reassessing wines to ensure the objectivity of the final scores.

The tasting days were only tiny pieces of a complex, fascinating puzzle: the scores must

be collated, the selected wines’ list released, winning wineries informed and promoted,

diplomas printed and, last but perhaps most importantly, the Guide written and published.

After the Guide has been produced, still the work continues throughout the year with

wine-searcher listings, special B2B moments during the events organized by Veronafiere in

Verona and abroad, trophies and selected wineries’ promotion on social media.

Trust me when I tell you that it takes extreme patience and commitment to streamline

the various human resources of the 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls “supply chain” to

complete the puzzle.

All this cannot be achieved without the 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls “extended family”.

Gianni Bruno, Exhibition Manager Wine & Food at Veronafiere, and his dedicated team

deserve a special mention for continuing to believe in this project and assisting in its

organization. ICE – Italian Trade Agency, for the synergic and harmonious cooperation to

promote Italian quality wines abroad, Assoenologi association — in particular to President

Riccardo Cotarella and Director Paolo Brogioni — for continuing to endorse the Selection

despite the unconventional concept, especially the lead oenologist Andrea Zanni for the

seamless of activity of assessment and anonymization of the wines on site before and during

the tastings. Monty Waldin, for his fast and efficient editing of the book (and of course his

excellent — and typically esoteric — commentary on it!), Mauro Cobelli, Veronafiere Legal

Affairs Coordinator of the Selection for strictly controlling the respect of the guidelines

and guaranteeing the safety of all the resources involved and last but not least, all the

judges, patiently waiting for the developments of the project and for the marvelous effort

to receive, store and blind taste the wines.

I will spare you the gory details but 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls this year was truly

a collective effort. Team members and affiliate partners have been incredibly generous

in their support and efficiency even at stressful times and, once more, I would like to

extend my most sincere “grazie di cuore” to all involved. A special thanks, however, goes to

Manuela, Rebecca, Jacopo, Cristina, Pauline, Elena, Andrea C., Andrea D., Nasir, Margherita,

Daniela, Koen, Davide, Franco and Marina because I drove them absolutely mad at times to

make this work as we had to reformat this edition exactly three different times. I am truly

grateful. That is all.

INTRODUCTION

11


Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW

Tasting wines in solitary confinement can be similar to painting in a dark room or

composing music when one’s ears are becoming weak. Wine was invented to be shared

and commented, not to be tasted in loneliness.

But Goya’s masterpieces were painted in almost total darkness, and the best works by

Beethoven came to his mind when he was deaf. Difficult constraints make us pay more

attention to the substance of things, and often bring the greatest results.

In 2020, we have had the most challenging edition of 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls,

but also the most endearing. The fundamental conditions for success were already

there: an incredible team of organizers, led by our dear Stevie Kim, a most amazing

selection of highly skilled and committed tasters, working virtually but hand-in-hand,

with lots of mutual trust. We stayed together to face a great challenge, ensuring an

objective and transparent way of communicating Italy’s excellency in its diversity of

wines. We all knew that our task was important. Italy’s wine industry deserves this effort

and much more. Italy was suffering during the pandemic in the most terrible way, and

so it was time to work for Italy, whatever the circumstances.

I hope that you find value in the 2020 edition of the 5StarWines - the Book, it is made

with as much joy as pain, and with a sincere love for Italy and its wines.

12


Judging wines for this extraordinary Agile edition of 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls

was both very different, and entirely the same as previous years. Different because we

were all working individually, but the same because assessing the wines involved the

same process as ever. The experience of taking account of the grape variety, region and

vintage, looking at the wine, carefully sniffing it and lengthily analyzing every aspect of

its flavor and texture is the same whether you are alone, or in a group. Effectively, you

put yourself in a bubble for as long as it takes.

Does this wine have the special qualities of balance, individuality, complexity and length

to warrant the 90 points that will get it into the book? Or is it only nearly good enough?

And if the score begins with a nine, what is the next figure going to be? How much

closer to 100 can it edge?

In Verona, we were given iPads with a proprietorial app into which we were asked to

put our marks. This time, working in our own homes and offices, we had to use our own

equipment, but the principles were the same; a new 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls

App ensured that we kept to the protocols for each wine we tasted.

In an ideal world, I’d naturally prefer to taste with other people, but there has been

nothing ideal about the last few months, and reviewing my experience and looking at

the final results, I’d like to congratulate the 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls team on

the way they have run a very successful event.

A few years ago, I was in Rome with a friend of mine. I was in her car parked in a piazza,

the place was crowded and looked like a parking lot. As a French man, I was terrified

and thought that no car could safely come and go from this place. But, of course, I was

wrong as cars and trucks managed to get around the piazza with ease. The scene was

magic. I was fascinated.

Year in and year out, when it comes to Italian wines, I am fascinated in exactly the same

way by the level of energy and intelligence that is displayed worldwide. The 5StarWines

tasting is an essential piece of this achievement. When I was blind tasting the wines

for the Selection this year, I was really impressed by the accuracy of the wines, the

relevance of the technical choices at all levels made by the Italian winemakers and the

ability to create wines of astonishing precision.

The great Italian wines are at the highest level in the world at the moment. I have had the

opportunity to scrutinize this on numerous occasions, and it is not an overestimation.

What really surprises me is the very personal approach to lesser-known wines that are,

each at their own level, little masterpieces. The strength of the 5StarsWines & Wine

Without Walls selection is to reveal them in large numbers.

Daniele Cernilli

The emergency caused by Covid-19 and the lockdown that resulted from it have

profoundly changed many aspects of our lives and the way we work. Operating

remotely has become something much more common for millions of people and even

the world of wine and wine competitions has had to adapt. This year 5StarWines – the

Book took the form of an “agile edition”, which involved a very laborious organizational

effort. Only a few judges, a delegation of Assoenologists and three members of the “onsite

commission”, including myself, took part in person in the tastings held at the Verona

headquarters. All the others tasted and evaluated remotely, receiving the samples at

their premises, most of them abroad.

As well as demonstrating how to adapt to the needs of our times, the “Agile” mode

introduced, for the first time, a new system for carrying out a complex tasting in all its

forms, first and foremost dictated by the involvement of dozens of people in various

countries around the world and which involved the evaluation of over two thousand

samples.

All the wines that were nominated for a score of 90/100 and above were then reevaluated

by the special commission in order to guarantee all the wines included in the

book that you have in your hands at least two assessments. The result, thanks to an

uncommon organizational effort, was prodigious.

15


Monty Waldin

The 2020 edition of “5StarWines - the Book” was a logistical challenge. Due to Covid-19,

it was necessary to create what became known as the Agile Edition. This involved

sending wines to individual judges by courier so that they could taste them at home,

rather than together with dozens of other judges together in Verona as is usual.

The bottles were seal-wrapped in such a way that the judges could not see the name of

the wine on the bottle. Judges were of course given the usual technical data: geographic

denomination (DOCG, DOC, IGP), the vintage, the alcohol and sweetness levels and

so on. Scores were entered electronically. Overall more than 2,000 thousand bottles

were sent to more than 40 judges in 13 countries. All borderline and higher scoring

potential 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls wines were re-tasted in the usual way

in Verona by the General Chairs. Whether remote tasting will become the new norm

is open to debate. Judging alone gives more autonomy, away from group-thinking.

Judging in groups allows accumulated knowledge and expertise to be shared for future

generations, vital given the complexity and diversity of Italian wine.

Italian wines? Neutral whites and tannic reds. Old prejudices die hard. Helping as Chief

Tasting Officer at 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls allows me to state that times have

changed. Approaching the tasting with my international education, I had great fun in

pinpointing grape variety and origin of hundreds of samples. Of course, judging is not

about that. However, the overall objective quality of a wine lays also in its expressivity

and sense of place. Then, the stylistic interpretation makes the greatness of a wine: is

it more terroir-driven or winemaking-focused? Both ways, quality can be equally high.

For that reason, we tend to re-taste the wines that feel a bit shy and understated,

often the ones that are most likely to flourish soon. One could say that those could

be the wines deemed to be ‘neutral whites’ back in the times. Not anymore. This is

the unparalleled greatness of Italy’s wine patrimony: huge diversity, yet clear signs

of distinctiveness. Sense of nerve, minerality and overall sustained freshness, with

Prosecco, Vermentino and Verdicchio leading the way. And the reds? This was the year

of the well-managed tannins: from the firm yet silky quality of Barolo to the plush and

juicy nature of Montepulciano. In conclusion, it has been a real pleasure to taste (and retaste)

through this edition of 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls. Even greater pleasure

is to realise that the Italian wine world is becoming more and more ‘agile’ even to the

eyes of international experts!

JUDGES

The virtue of 5StarWines - the Book lies in the highly qualified,

international panel of judges comprising Masters of Wine, Master

Sommeliers, sommeliers, wine journalists, and oenologists. The

international team of remote judges was coordinated by an expert

panel of judges: Pedro Ballesteros Torres, Master of Wine from Spain

and Member of the Governing Council of the Institute of Masters of

Wine; Bernard Burtschy, President of the French Wine Press and

columnist for Le Figaro; Robert Joseph, Editor at Large for Meininger’s

Wine Business International; Daniele Cernilli, “Doctor Wine” and cofounder

of Gambero Rosso; Monty Waldin, wine writer (Decanter),

broadcaster, and author of 13 books on organic and biodynamic wine.

Wines were initially tasted by individual judges and assigned

points up to 100, in order to receive the 5StarWines recognition,

any wines that were deemed faulty or the candidates to be scored

90 or above during the round of tasting were re-sampled by the

General Chairmen in Verona to provide an extra level of integrity.

The judges were comprised of 50 professionals with high

credentials, including not only Masters of Wine, but also

highly experienced industry and Italian wine specialists; wine

writers, importers, educators, and esteemed wine sector

professionals, giving this guide immense credibility and standing.

The significance of the 5StarWines selection is even more important

in a year when the entire industry has been impacted by Covid-19.

This Selection allowed Italian wine to continue to be in the hearts and

minds of wine professionals and highlighted to the industry at large

that Italian wine is very much continuing with its passionate project

to bring their wines into a global market. As Pedro Ballesteros has

said “5StarWines should be a major tool for Italian producers to

receive feedback on how the quality of their wines is perceived by

top-level experts from all over the world. A unique opportunity for

Italian producers to source precious information about their wines.”

The international and expert reputation of the judges coupled with

the participation of over 2,000 wines from not only Italy, but Europe

and South America, highlights the growing importance of 5StarWines

globally.

ROSSO PICENO DOC SUPERIORE

“CAMPO DELLE MURA” 2012

A very deep red colour, this wine is perfumed, like ripe cherries in

a freshly baked croissant. It is deep and multi-layered, rich, full of

ripe and fresh berries, spice, balsamic notes, fresh tobacco and

sweet blackberries. A bit rustic on the palate with thick tannins and

excellent acidity. Truly a meditation wine.

Dark ruby. Fresh nose from a cool terroir, revealing dark fruit, and a

hint of wood. The palate shows firm grippy tannins, waiting to soften

with age. Flavours of bramble, blueberry, dark cherry. Great balance

between the high acidity, fruit concentration and high tannins. Long

finish. Would be a shame to drink it too young now.

RIOJA DOC TEMPRANILLO RESERVA

“ALTOS DE CORRAL SINGLE ESTATE” 2011

A bright crimson red that shows precise and intense red fruit (red

cherry, plum), vanilla, fresh fig and forest floor. Silky ripe tannins are

SALENTO IGP ROSATO “METIUSCO” 2019

Dark copper pink. This wine holds lovely varietal characters of ripe

red fruit, spice and a hint of bitter orange peel. Long fresh, slightly

mineral acidity that isn’t out of place thanks to the balance of fruit

wide appeal.

Dark ruby, almost impenetrable colour in the glass. A wine with

pure, focused, layered aromas with good freshness: blackcurrants,

blackberries and blueberries are framed by perfumed floral notes

and aromatic herbs. The fresh, elegant and dense palate has

characteristic dark fruit and bright spiciness of Syrah. Nice minerality

and elegant tannins. Smoky chocolatey finish.

Dark ruby red. Perfumed, and with a subtle black liquorice and a

of clove in the finale.

VERDICCHIO DEI CASTELLI DI JESI DOC CLASSICO

“VIGNEDILEO” 2019

Intense grassy notes, with pear and apple aromas sprinkled with

white flowers. The refreshing acidity and moderate mid-palate

weight are well balanced by some creamy texture. The finish lingers

and the wine shows very good overall balance and a refreshing

mineral-driven style.

ABRUZZO DOP PASSERINA 2018

Deep straw yellow. The dominant aroma is pink grapefruit, whose

exuberant cleansing tanginess is lifted by saline notes that allow

what is a medium- to full-bodied wine to seem light on its feet,

and versatile enough as aperitif and on into the first course. Very

pleasant, good body and persistent finish.

modernity and tradition, with musk alongside the lovely fruit and

“IL TORRIANO” 2016

A nicely balanced red plum, red cherry, red given a well-judged

sprinkling of oak. For such a young wine it is already starting to

develop leather notes, an indication that the wine will be a keeper.

The tannins and acidity are both high but the fruit balances this out

meaning it can be enjoyed now but has a potentially long life ahead.

DELLE VENEZIE DOC PINOT GRIGIO RAMATO 2019

Delicate salmon pink colour. The aroma profile includes both wild

and spikey greengage as well as softer honeysuckle. The palate is

vibrant, a balancing contrast between brisk acidity and Pinot Grigio’s

weightier mid-palate almost tropical softeness. The wine lingers

thanks to its long aftertaste.

“VIGNE DEL PORTALE” 2019

An incredibly complex fruity example of this style, with classic rose

aromas that are unusually backed by ripe tropical melon and mango,

giving a very attractive nose. The palate has balanced the sweet

richness with acidity that means it finishes clean and refreshing.

Outstanding wine!

NOTO DOC NERO D’AVOLA RISERVA

“PATRONO” 2016

A deepish Mediterranean red which has been skillfully made, not least

because the fruit is very dark in colour but clear in its expression, and

well matched with some high quality oak. An intense wine with plenty

of potential for bottle age.

PECORINO VINO SPUMANTE BRUT “VOILÀ” N.V.

Medium lemon-green hue. Refined notes of lemon, fresh grass,

fennel, and green apple. Medium-bodied and off-dry, with a delicate

mousse lifted by a zesty acidity. Structured and intense, with a

lemony, lingering finish. A fruity, intriguing wine that could pair well

with main courses such as veal or oily fish.

VERMENTINO DI GALLURA DOCG “BRANU” 2019

A medium-pale straw coloured white. On the nose it exudes leesy

and crunchy notes that lay over the citrus fruit, adding layers of

complexity. A very well directed and linear palate profile is given

its vibrancy by the notably fresh acidity, the significant mid-palate

weight and the lifted aftertaste. Lovely with or without food.
